ROASTED CHICKEN WITH LEMON GARLIC AND HERB BUTTER!! THE ULTIMATE FAMILY DINNER.

Growing up roasted chicken was definitely a staple in my mom’s cooking and I have continued that tradition. Roasting chicken is so easy and pleases even the pickiest of eaters. You can keep it simple and just season it with salt and pepper or jazz it up a bit like I do and make a garlic lemon butter.

Compound butter is a favorite of mine to make. It’s make ahead friendly and freezes well. You can literally add any of your favorite spices and herbs into and it would be delish. For this recipe I stuck with more traditional flavors that pair well with chicken – lemon, garlic and herbs. Simply mixed together in softened butter and tucked under the skin of the chicken.
