Chicken rubbed with a mixture of butter, rosemary, garlic and lemon zest is roasted for 1 hour in this recipe you will use over and over again!
I like to let the chicken rest in the fridge for a few hours or a full day after placing the herb butter under the skin.
This is the way I've always made my roasted chicken. I think you can't beat the flavors of rosemary, garlic, thyme, lemon, S &P, and butter. Please remember that the size of your chicken will affect the cooking time and amounts of seasonings. I figure that this recipe would be perfect for a 4 lb chicken, so a smaller or bigger chicken would require adjustments] - 07 Oct 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Loved it!! I've tried several different roasted chicken recipes and this was easy to follow and comes out perfect every time.. - 20 Sep 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I only added a smudge of garlic butter on top of the chicken the last 15 mins of roasting for a flavorful, crispy skin. - 20 Sep 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
