What I Cooked Today… Another Herbs de Provence Recipe with Roast Chicken


1 whole chicken
2 tbsp herbs de provence
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp butter (softened, by leaving out for 30 minutes)
salt and pepper to taste


Remove the insides of the chicken (heart, liver, lungs), clean with cold water and pat dry with a dry paper towel. In a bowl, mix softened butter, olive oil, herbs de provence, salt and pepper. Heat oven to 350. In a baking dish, put the chicken inside, and then spread the mixture all over the chicken with your hands. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour. When the chicken is cooked well the meat will start coming off from the bones, the liquids will run clear, and the internal temperature will be around 165 degrees F.

Happy Cooking!
