A roast chicken can also be packed with a flavour punch as shown in this recipe that has loads of garlic, butter and rosemary.
Used different ingredients. I make this recipe with coriander instead of rosemary which I find too overpowering with chicken! Also lovely with the addition of pistachio nuts, almond slivers or chopped macadamias to the butter. - 29 Oct 2009
Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe is wonderful, and as easy as baking a chicken normally is. It is nice, due to the nice medley of fresh herbs and lemon. One note, I didn't add all the butter mixture to the chicken, as it was quite a lot. Half of the mixture (with the full amount of herbs, just half the butter) works wonderfully as well. Or make the full batch, and use the rest of the herb butter for bread, etc. Additionally, I did not have kitchen string, and so used dental floss (clean, of course!) and it worked perfectly! Not the quickest of recipes, it is a crowd pleaser. - 18 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. It was delish, however, i did halve the amount of butter, but kept the rest of the ingredients as per the recipe. Also, I should have left the flavours develop a bit more before roasting.... will definately make it again =) - 12 Apr 2010
