Crispy Baked Chicken with Cilantro-Lime Jalapeño Butter

Crispy Baked Chicken with Cilantro-Lime Jalapeño Butter

I made this cilantro-lime jalapeño butter last summer to drown my roasted corn in.  Corn on the cob, right off the grill, and dipped in this butter…I’m drooling just thinking about it!

About 8 months later, and I’m just getting around to making it again.  Not exactly sure why it took me so long, because it’s that good!  I thought it would go well with my honey mustard {crispy} baked chicken.  

I NEVER bake chicken…it just always ends up to dry.  We have an awesome grill and I’ve really become an expert on grilling just about anything, says my hubby!  I decided to increase the temperature in my oven to 425 and cook it in less time and it was perfect.
