Cook’s Nook – Roasted Chicken with Butter and Garlic

Whenever I am too lazy to prepare a dish that will require lots of preparation I always opt for an easy dish that doesn’t need effort.

I particularly loves the herby butter which I rub under the skin – it keeps the chicken moist and is packed full of flavor.

This is a very simple recipe, all the ingredients are readily available in your pantry.

You’ll be needing soft butter and mix it with chopped garlic and herbs of your choice – I used lemon,thyme and rosemary. Season the herby butter with salt and pepper. Gently work your fingers underneath the chicken skin to loosen it, trying not to rip it. Using your hands, work the butter underneath the skin. Rub the remaining butter over the top of the chicken. Pop in the oven for 1-1/2 hours, depending on the size of your chicken. Served with hot steaming rice.
