Ingredients

  • 3

    tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 2

    tablespoons butter or margarine, softened

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 2

    teaspoons grated lemon rind

  • 2

    garlic cloves, pressed

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    teaspoon pepper

  • 1

    (4-pound) whole chicken

Directions

Stir together first 7 ingredients. Starting at neck cavity, loosen skin from breast and drumsticks by inserting fingers and gently pushing between skin and meat. (Do not completely detach skin.) Rub half of butter mixture evenly under skin. Tie ends of legs together with string; tuck wing tips under. Spread remaining half of butter mixture over chicken. Place chicken, breast side up, on a lightly greased rack in a lightly greased shallow roasting pan. Heat Oven to 350°, and bake 1 hour 20 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted into thigh registers 180°. Cover loosely with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning, if necessary. Remove chicken to a serving platter, reserving drippings in pan. Cover chicken with foil, and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
