    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This chicken is basted inside and out with the flavor of garlic-oregano butter. It's simple, with ingredients most people have on-hand, and it goes equally well with potatoes, rice, or pasta. A good weeknight meal!

      This was great. I used chicken fillets and it came out perfect. I love the flavors and the butter/herb mixture inside kept everything moist, tender and loaded with flavor. I added some chicken broth after the chicken was cooked and reduced, poured this over the chicken and wow. Thank you. I will make this often.

      I followed the recipe except for the amount of oregano. I knew 1 teaspoon would be overpowering for our tastes so I cut it back to 1/2 teaspoon. The chicken was very moist, tender and flavorful.

      I didn't do this exactly to recipe but do not think I invaded upon the integrity of the recipe, I did have one oops moment in that after I applied the butter to the chicken I realized I had used chilli powder instead of cayenne and I also baked the chicken instead of doing it on the stove top, I quartered a whole chicken (the only way we can get chicken breast on the bone) and also used the Maryland's (that is what we call the cut of chicken were the thigh and leg are kept whole) and I put the butter under the skin and baked in a casserole dish at 175C fan forced for 50 minutes and the result was succulent chicken and crispy skin and the juices we drizzled over the steam veggies and the mashed potato, a great dinner enjoyed by all thank you EdsGirlAngie, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
