Everyday Night Roast Chicken with Herb Butter

Flip it!


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]

Loved it!! I’ve tried several different roasted chicken recipes and this was easy to follow and comes out perfect every time..

Turned out wonderfully. I made a gravy using the drippings 1/4 cup flour and 2 cups of broth and it was amazing! My chicken was 5 lbs and took about an hour and 15 minutes. My daughter wouldn’t stop raving about how moist the white meat was. Thank you 🙂

Delicious! I was out of lemons but I did have some zest frozen for that part. I substituted stuffing the bird with onions instead of lemons. Also I had the fresh rosemary but only dried thyme. Worked great! Yummy recipe 🙂

I only added a smudge of garlic butter on top of the chicken the last 15 mins of roasting for a flavorful, crispy skin.

This is the best chicken I have ever eaten. I made it exactly as written. You will not be disappointed with this recipe. It is the only recipe I will use in the future and I am thinking it may be great used on a turkey. YUMM!!

I made one change due to dietary restrictions. Instead of butter I used Earth Balance® and only half the amount specified. The timing was a bit off, mine took 1 1/2 hours. Great recipe that I’ll make again. Thanks for sharing. Update: I’ve made this a few times since my first review as hubs requested it and he seldom requests any dish. Tonight I put potatoes around the chicken and then broiled them while the chicken was resting for more colour. Loved it, thanks again.
