Roast Chicken with Orange and Black Pepper Baste

With very little fuss you can turn an ordinary roast chicken into an extraordinary roast chicken; sorry I couldn't help myself there!

Unsalted butter the zest of an orange and black pepper mix together and that's it you have a lovely flavoured butter to rub all over your chicken. Just add a drizzle of olive oil to help stop the butter burning.

Roast Chicken with Orange and Black Pepper Butter Baste

Orange and black pepper butter can, of course, be used to baste a turkey instead of chicken. You could even smear it over chicken fillets and pan-fry them.

Besides this Orange and Black Pepper my all-time favourite has to be one by Jamie Oliver; Thyme, Cumin and Orange.

You can do so much with flavoured butter depending on what flavour you're after. To liven up Brussels sprouts this Chestnut, Bacon and Sage flavoured butter is truly delicious. Or for something completely different you could even make an Indian-style flavoured butter.

Ingredients:

Use about 80g of unsalted butter for a chicken or for a turkey, use 125g
1 large orange - zest only
Olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper

Method:
Mix the butter together with the zest of an orange along with a pinch of salt and a good pinch or two of black pepper.

Rub the chicken all over with the butter, drizzle a little olive oil, this stops the butter burning.

Pop in a couple of slices of orange, cover very loosely with foil and pop into the oven to cook as usual.

Baste the chicken a couple of times during cooking and remove the foil about half an hour before the end to brown up the skin.

If you're wondering about a flavoured butter idea for salmon how about Foil baked Salmon with Chilli and Lime although this recipe isn't actually for making flavoured butter the combo is used in it so I'm thinking it will be next on my list.
