How to make this recipes:
First of all I made the butter flavor – I diced 100g butter about, and I crushed separately in a mortar 3 cloves of garlic, along with thyme, rosemary and sage (if you can, use fresh herbs- it Makes all the difference), peel lemon, and salt & pepper. Then we mixed the herbs and butter.
The next step was moistening chicken with butter. I’m ashamed to say, but I violated the chicken in all possible holes with the butter. But I did it for the greatest causes. I separated the skin from meat, from chest (yes, I know you are gross) and I anointed with butter between the meat and skin …
Then I have anointed also inside, and out – more, in all possible places! But this way, all the wonderful flavors of butter entered the meat on all sides, and around it was the first chicken that I have eaten that was not at all rigid, but tender and delicious!
Inside, I put a whole lemon, which I pricked her about 10 times with a knife, a few cloves of garlic and some sprigs of thyme and sage.
I put in a hot oven on low heat for about 2 hours. I have taken it out about 40 minutes, to anoint it with butter from the pan.
It was a marvel! Tender, juicy, aromatic … perfect!
