Recipe: Fleurt Roasted Chicken

Fleurt Roasted Chicken

Oven temp: 450


1 whole chicken (approximately 3 1/2 lbs)
4 T Fleurt Butter – Roasted Garlic Herb, Sundried Tomato or Chipotle Lime – softened, but not melted!!
1 small white onion
1 lemon
3/4 t salt
1 1/4t ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Remove bag with giblets & discard.  Rinse inside and outside of chicken; dry outside of chicken thoroughly with paper towels.

Quarter the onion and lemon and stuff into the chicken cavity. 

Using your fingertips, gently seperate the skin from the breast meat and legs.  Rub the Fleurt  Butter under the skin.

Tie the legs together with cooking twine. Rub the outside of the chicken with the salt and black pepper.

Place the chicken, breast side up, on a rack in a small roasting pan.  Pour 1/4 cup of water into the bottom of the roasting pan.  Roast the chicken for 1 hour or until juices run clear when the thickest part of the thigh is pierced with the tip of a knife.  Internal temperature (when thermometer is inserted into thickest part of thigh) reaches 175 degrees F.

When the chicken is done, remove it from the roasting pan, tilting slightly to let the cavity juices to drain.  Place the chicken on a platter and leave to stand for 10 minutes to allow the juices to set.

Remove the rack from the roating pan.  Skim and discard fat from the pan juices.  Add 1/4 cup of water to pan juices and cook for 1 minute on medium, stirring constantly.  Serve carved chicken with pan juices.

 Serves 4.


About Fleurt Butter

Butter's been given a bad rap over the years and I'm on a mission to make butter sexy again; to take delicious, flavorful, colorful, sensuous butter. I am not a chef; I blush when I refer to myself as a 'cook' because that seems too generous. Sometimes I turn out dishes that I am incredibly proud of, often times I'm just pleased to get something on the table without burning the house down. The idea behind Fleurt is that using it in meal preparation enables me to put fabulous food on the table in front of my family and friends with a minimum risk of botching the job! I should warn you that I can not be held responsible for all grammatical errors and general rambling...I might be undergoing 'therapy' as I write (see my 1st post). I'm writing these posts and cringing as I do so. I've yet to be convinced that people actually want to read what I write, but I am hopeful that the recipes I post are used and enjoyed. I certainly have fun testing them and finding ways to bring Fleurt into my daily life!
