This spicy chicken is slathered with spicy chimichurri butter and roasted to crispy perfection. You can roast a whole chicken or just your favorite cuts. This amazing Argentian dish is healthy, warm and inviting.

Mix the melted butter with the Chimichurri Sauce until combined.
Pre-heat oven to 400F
Rub the Chimichurri butter all over chicken, including under the skin as much as possible and place in a roasting pan.
