Anyway, I used our old standby recipe for herb butter and smoothed it all underneath the skin of the chicken. Yes, underneath. The skin is water tight, so if you put the butter on the outside it doesn't really soak into the meat. Trust me, under the skin is the way to go.
Don't worry, if you don't have the baker, you can cook this in a large corningware, or just cook in your oven or crockpot (but it will take a heck of a lot longer). It will still taste delicious!
Bring butter to room temp and mix in the herbs.
- 1 Tbsp. paprika
- Dashes garlic powder, thyme, black pepper and salt
Make sure to clean out the chicken's insides. cut any extra fat and rinse the chicken. As I mentioned above, rub the herb butter under the chicken skin. Sprinkle the spices on top. Mist the baker with olive oil and place chicken inside. Cook in microwave for 30 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degrees. Remove from microwave, cover and let rest 10 minutes.
