Herbs Butter Roasted Chicken Recipe with Crispy Skin and Moist Meat served with Homemade Peanut Butter Satay Sauce. It’s a kinda late to said happy EASTER to everyones, but i guess it’s better then never thou. Unfortunately, i couldn’t spent this year easter with my family due to my hectic and thight clinical schedules. Somehow, i felt i need to bring the senses homey to my house; which is represent in a comfort food like roasted chicken. Well, actually my mom used to roast a malay or kampong chicken that already braised until tender in rendang or thick curry sauces for hours instead of regular hen chicken, but i guess my version of roasted hen chicken with melted herbs butter underneath the skin is considered as a comfort for my licking.

The highlight of this roasted chicken recipe is the crispness and the crunchyness of the chicken skin within a refreshing burst of herbs butter on it. To make a crispy skin  roasted chicken, the chicken skin must be totally dry. Make sure you patted dry the chicken skin with paper towels first, then exposed the chicken skin with flowing air from  a fan for an hour before cooking will really do the trick. I’ve try this dry skin method and it works with my Chinese Style Roasted Squab Pigeon.  You also can hang the chicken with a hook so the juices can dripped out and the carcass can rotate freely in front of the fan.  Another methot that usualy applied before the fan tricks is a good rub of salt. A sprinkling of salt will tend to bring moisture to the surface, where  the flown air from the fan and also the heat of the oven will evaporate it later.

The best method of making a crispy and crackling roasted chicken skin is separating the connective tissue between the skin and the meat. This tricks allow the fat underneath the skin renderred and enhanced the crispiness of the roasted chicken skin. You also can put infused butter underneath the inflated chicken skin like herbs butter that i use within this recipe. If you use herbs, such as mint, cilantro, parsley, and dill, make sure you squeezed it out until dry with somekind of cheese cloth after you chopping it. Any remaining  moisture in the herbs infused butter that slipped underneath the chicken skin will messed up the roasted chicken skin into pale and soggy instead of crispy and crunchy. You can use a bicycle pump or baloon pump to inflating the chicken skin and forced the skin away from the meat, it’s gonna be better if you had air compressor pump to do the blown the chicken skin job.

The best temperature setting to roasting the chicken between 350-450 F (180-235 °C), it  can give you nicely crispy skin while the meat is tender, juicy and cooked through. Never exposed the chicken with the dripping liquid and oil (gravy) while you roasting the chicken or the chicken skin won’t crisp. Put the chicken above a shallow metal rack that holds the chicken above the edge of pan. Start roast the chicken breast side-up, and flip it over about a third of the way through the cooking process. Roasting a chicken isn’t  maxillofacial surgery. Follow a few simple rules, be willing to engage in trial and error, and you should have it down fairly soon. Good luck within your roasted chicken!
