Butter Roasted Whole Chicken

It is good enough to give up your fork. We had this Butter Roasted Whole Chicken this past weekend. The table was quiet, and I looked up to find several of my family members eating their chicken with their hands. My husband smiled and said, “This chicken is so good.” I thought about it a minute and decided to join them. I had it all over my face, and it was starting to run down my arms. I know what you are thinking.  Do not judge me! My oldest daughter who was using her fork just shook her head at me. I replied, “this chicken is good enough for me to give up my fork.” I am enjoying it.

First Step:  Butter Roasted Whole Chicken

  • Fold the wings across the back of the chicken so the tips are touching. 
  • On a rack in a shallow roasting pan or 13 x 9-inch pan, place chicken, breast side up. 

Second Step:  Inject Butter In Whole Chicken

  • Next, use an injector and inject one stick of melted butter into the chicken.
  • Brush some of the butter on the skin of the chicken.  

Third Step:  Season The Chicken

  • Do not be shy when adding seasoning to your whole chicken! I use a combination of Montreal Chicken, Granulated Garlic, and Rotisserie Chicken on this chicken. I used a couple of teaspoons of each seasoning. Next, season the chicken well with Greek seasoning.  You can easily find it at your local grocery store.  Plus, add some extra granulated garlic.

Fourth Step:  Roast Whole Chicken

  • Roast uncovered in the oven for about 40 minutes at 425 degrees. Reduce the temperature to 375.

Insert a Meat Thermometer

Insert an ovenproof meat thermometer so the tip is in the thickest part of the thigh but does not touch the bone.

Fifth Step:  Add The Green beans And Continue Cooking

  • Arrange the green beans around the chicken. Now, add the cup of chicken broth around the chicken.  Roast uncovered 375 degrees F. for another 40 minutes or until the thermometer reads at least 165°F and the veggies are tender. Cover loosely with foil; let stand 15 minutes before carving. The chicken will continue to cook once removed from the oven.
  • If the chicken gets too brown before the temperature reaches 165 degrees F., add a piece of foil around the whole chicken.

Notes

Roast uncovered in the oven for about 45 minutes. Arrange vegetables around the chicken.  Add the chicken broth around the chicken.  Roast uncovered for another 30 to 45 minutes or until the thermometer reads at least 165°F and the legs move easily when lifted or twisted and the veggies are tender. Cover loosely with foil; let stand 15 minutes before carving. 
If the skin on your chicken does not get brown, turn your oven on broil and cook the chicken a few extra minutes.  You will have to watch it extremely closely.  It will burn easily. 
If the butter gets too thick when injecting it, thin it down with a little chicken broth.
