Herb Roasted Chicken

Herb Roasted Chicken

Something about roasting things makes them so much better and chicken is no exception. Before fall and winter hit, I harvested some of my herbs to use and marinade the chicken. The butter and coconut oil to also help keep the bird moist. I like to put these in a baking dish small enough to keep them from just touching. I also hit it with chicken broth to keep it moist and from burning on the bottom.

1tbs of Organic Butter/Ghee

Marinate your chicken breasts with the mustard, melted butter and minced herbs for up to 24hrs.
In a 400 degree oven add you chicken to a smaller dish but not touching and your 1tbs of Coconut Oil and cook for 40mins – 50mins. Add chicken stock every 10mins or so to maintain moistness.

The herbs really make this dish with that touch of zing from coarse grain mustard and the juiciness from the roasting make this dish stand out despite how easy it is.
