This butter roasted chicken is a fast and easy recipe that roasts in a single pan for easy cleanup. It is a hit with kids, and they will never know they have eaten brussels sprouts!

    I made a butter-coated roast chicken yesterday, and boy, all those juices were beautiful! I saved them and the carcass. Where can I find the “Sunday recipe”? :)
