Garlic Herb Butter Roast Chicken

Ingredients

Whole Chicken
Garlic
Butter
Olive oil
A touch of lemon
A hint of dry white wine (optional, but adds so much flavour to the meat while keeping it so juicy)
Rosemary
Parsley

Instructions

Method:

  1. Preheat oven.
  2. Rinse and pat dry Broiler Whole Chicken with paper towel.
  3. Combine olive oil, melted butter, wine (if using) and lemon juice together, rubbing all over the chicken, under the skin and inside the cavity.
  4. Season chicken outside and inside with salt, pepper and parsley. Don’t be afraid to use generous amounts!
  5. Rub the minced garlic over the chicken and under the skin. I do this separately as the last step to maximise the garlic taste.
  6. Stuff the garlic head into the chicken cavity along with the rosemary sprigs and the squeezed lemon halve. You can also use sprigs of Thyme or any other herb.
  7. Roast chicken, basting half way through cooking time, until cooked through.
  8. Broil until golden and crispy!
