Roast Butter Chicken

Leave a comment

Roast chicken is one of our favorites so I am always looking for ways to fix it.  We enjoyed this recipe quite a bit even if I did leave out the rosemary and nutmeg because I’m not a fan of either.  I also roasted a whole chicken even though the recipe called for chicken pieces.  This recipe is very easy!

Roast Butter Chicken

1 chicken, whole or cut-up
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp paprika
2 tsps salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp crushed rosemary
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 cayenne

Heat oven to 325º. Place chicken in a roasting pan.

Combine all the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and pour over the chicken.

Bake, uncovered for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until all the juices run clear, basting occasionally.

Makes 4-6 servings

Happy Cooking!
