  • 1 Chicken,
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter,
  • Thyme, Rosemary, Basil, Oregano
  • 1 Onion
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Half a Lemon
  • Soy Sauce.


    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Rinse/clean and pat dry your chicken. Place it in a foil lined pan and let it chill.
    2. Combine your butter and herbs and mix it all up.
    3. Put the butter mixture on the chicken and rub it onto the skin. Now squeeze the juice of your lemon on top of your butter mixture (and save it!)
    4. Slice an onion in a half, grab your garlic cloves and your squeezed lemon and shove it in your chicken's cavity.
    5. In a 180 degree oven your chicken goes for at least an hour and a half. Ultimately the time it takes to cook will depend on how big your chicken is. Mine was 8 pounds and I kept him in there for 2 hours.
    6. Half way through your cooking time, open up the oven and pour on some soy sauce all over the chicken & sprinkle on some paprika.
    7. The chicken should now be left to cook for the remaining time.
