Making sure your kids have clean clothes and a full stomach are only a couple of them, but having them help you cook in the kitchen is just as important. When my kids become adults, I hope they've learned enough from me, that they can put together a meal for their friends or dare I say…even their dates! One recipe I think is important is cooking the perfect roast chicken. A medium sized chicken can easily feed four and maybe even leave you with some leftovers for sandwiches the next day if you shred it thoroughly. I always start with a chicken around 4-5 pounds, giving it a rinse under some cold water and patting it dry with paper towels.
And then the fun part begins! I like to cover the whole chicken with a mixture of buttery spread, fresh herbs, salt and black pepper. Brummel and Brown Organic Buttery Yogurt Spread is made with organic yogurt and tastes just like (even better) than regular butter. It has half the saturated fat of regular butter too! The buttery spread cooks and bakes just like butter so I knew it would be perfect for my classic roast chicken. I went with sage for this chicken but rosemary, thyme, and oregano are all equally as flavorful so feel free to switch them up. Using enough of your buttery spread is important because that will ensure you end up with a juicy chicken with some of the tastiest, herby skin you ever tasted! Don’t forget to baste the chicken as it cooks with the melted buttery spread from the base of the pan. I think you’ll love this recipe and the smell it creates in the kitchen will make you drool, so be warned!
