This is a straightforward dried chile, whole roasted chicken recipe on those nights you want to feed the whole family but don't want to spend all night in the kitchen. This is just a really easy recipe with no fuss using the whole chicken that takes minimal prep time. It is easy to add to beans when cooking, pulverize in to a powder for fresh chile powder, or salsa or any other number of uses including this recipe.  

I decided to go with a marinade that uses chiles, orange juice, and vinegar as the base. Simply blend that with a few other ingredients and that is your marinade. Marinade for a little or as much as you have time for. I would recommend at least 2 hours up to overnight. Roast in your big green egg if you have one and that really is all there is to this recipe.
