Herby Garlic Butter

This is the ultimate herby garlic butter. Pimp up a roast chicken by stuffing the butter under the skin of the chicken. Pop on top of a steak, mixed with some veggies, over fish or make your own garlic bread.


  1. Slice off the top part of the garlic to expose all the individual cloves, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Wrap in tin foil, place on a small roasting tray and roast in a pre-heated oven at 180℃ for 50 minutes or till the garlic is super tender. Just keep checking on it every 20 minutes or so. Depending on the size of the garlic bulb it may take a little longer or less.
  2. Once the garlic is ready get a bowl and squeeze the garlic bulb into it discarding of all the skin. Now add the rest of the ingredients, season and mix well.
  3. Once mixed roll into a sausage shape and wrap in baking paper or clingfilm. Pop it into the fridge to set and you are good to go.
