As promised, here is the a reason to use that compound butter I made yesterday. You could call this compound butter chicken, but that doesn't sound as good as butter under the skin chicken.
Here is the recipe:
Compound butter (see 3-12-13 post)
1 whole 3-5 pound chicken
Preheat oven to 375°f.
Place your chicken on large baking sheet lined with foil.
Split your compound butter into two parts.
Take a rubber spatula with half the butter on the end.
Carefully place it under the skin of the chicken breast. Smooth it out and repeat with other half.
Salt the top of chicken.
Place in preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours or until it reaches an internal temperature of 160°f.
