Guest Post – Roasted Quarter Chicken

After a little blogging break I am back and so is One Hungry Dude! Here’s another great recipe for you to try – and it’s an easy one so perfect for when you’re feeling draggy on a Monday evening. Enjoy!

Today I’m sharing an herb butter recipe that, while simple, packs a great amount of flavour. I like this recipe for chicken but it can easily be adapted for other types of poultry including turkey. Chicken is simple to prepare which makes it a great option for a weeknight dinner when you don’t have an hour to stand in the kitchen.

Roasted Quarter Chicken

• Four Pieces of Quarter Chicken
• 8 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
• 4 Tbsp Olive Oil
• 2 Tsp Worcestershire Sauce
• 2 Tsp Thyme
• 2 Tsp Basil
• Juice from 1/2 Lemon
• Salt and Pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 C. Mix the butter, olive oil, Worcestershire Sauce, thyme, basil and lemon together in a bowl. Use your hand to rub the butter mixture onto the chicken, until each piece is thoroughly coated. Place in a roasting pan or deep, oven safe dish. Cook for about 45 to 50 minutes, basting roughly every 20 minutes, until the skin becomes crispy and the chicken reaches doneness. Remove the chicken from the oven, let sit for about five minutes, then serve.
