This extra special Herby Roast Chicken- using our Fresh & Zesty butter for heaps of flavour to take your Sunday roast to the next level.


Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan). Put the chicken on a board, halve a zested lemon and put inside the chicken cavity with half of the bunch of thyme or rosemary. Carefully lift the neck flap and separate the skin from the breast meat, gently push in half of the Herb & Lemon butter and spread it as best you can. Rub the remaining butter over the skin of the chicken. Transfer to a large roasting tin.

Roast for about 1hr 30- 1hr 40 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Remove the chicken and smother the remaining herb butter all over whilst still hot. Serve with potatoes and veg of choice.
