"Our family eats a chicken every other weekend so sometimes it is challenging to find new ways of roasted chicken. This idea nailed it. Delicious, juicy, interesting. Tummies were full and my daughter even asked for second serving - VERY rare. Great with couscous, raisins, and peeled almonds as a side dish." — NatalieTheMamaCook

1 (4 pound)
whole chicken, cut lengthwise
kosher salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
ground cinnamon, or as needed
chile peppers, chopped
Absolutely delicious. The maple syrup really gave the chicken a sweet and savory crisp flavor while the water/syrup bath kept the chicken moist on the inside. I would have preferred to leave out the chile pepper because I think it was just a tiny bit overpowering but it still didn't detract from the flavor.
