  • Author: Sweetpea


Herb Butter Roasted Chicken is the easiest roast chicken recipe you’ll ever make! Chicken is slathered in herby garlic butter, and stuffed with an onion and lemon.


  • 1 stick Garlic Herb Butter from Kerrygold
  • 1 lemon, sliced into quarters
  • 1 shallot (or small onion), sliced in half
  • Optional: 1 pound cut carrots, and 1 large onion sliced


  1. Preheat your oven to 425˚.
  2. Remove the giblets from the inside of the chicken.
  3. Pat dry with a paper towel, and stuff full of shallot and lemon.
  4. Take half the softened Kerrygold Garlic and Herb Butter and place it under the skin, pushing it all under.
  5. Use the remaining half of the butter, and cover the outside of the chicken.
  6. Roast the chicken on top of cut-up carrots and onions at 425˚ for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165˚
  7. Allow the chicken to rest under a tent of foil for 15 minutes before carving and serving!
