In this video, you’ll learn how to make the ultimate roast chicken. You’ll see one of Chef John’s favorite tricks for roasting chicken. He’ll teach you how to make a simple flavored compound butter to rub under the chicken’s skin. The easy rub combines room-temperature butter with herbs, garlic, and lemon zest. You’ll see a neat trick for loosening the skin of the chicken, so you can really get the butter in there. This simple rub technique keeps the delicious citrus, herb, and butter flavor inside the bird instead of draining off into the pan. See top-rated recipes for roast chicken.

Tried this method a couple days ago, and the pan gravy recipe that follows. Turned out perfectly perfect! This is my go-to roast chicken recipe from now on! used dried herbs instead of fresh, and stuffed cavity with lemon wedges, celery stalk, and red onion wedges. We were in heaven!!

I tried this recipe last night and my husband loved it! I substituted the fresh herbs for dried and copied everything else to a T. Great!
