Lover’s Chicken Breast

Ingredients (serves 4):

    You’ll Need:

    • 4 chicken breasts, skin on, boneless
    • salt and pepper to taste

    For the Hill Country Compound Butter:

    • 1 serrano chile
    • 1 tsp shallot, finely diced
    • 1 tsp roasted garlic
    • 8 Tbsp butter, unsalted
    • 1 Tbsp lime juice
    • 1 tsp black pepper
    • 1 tsp cilantro, finely chopped
    • 1 tsp chili powder
    • 1 tsp oregano, fresh finely chopped
    Instructions:
    1. Mix all of the compound butter ingredients together in a bowl. Use a piece of wax paper to form it into a roll or log. Cut into 4 sections.
    2. Preheat your oven or a grill set up for indirect heat to 400f.
    3. Season the top and bottom of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Use two sections of the butter and press it up under the skin of the 4 chicken breasts. Slather the third section of the butter on top of the skin.
    4. Place the chicken breasts on a raised rack above a sheet pan with edges and place in the middle rack of the oven. Cook until the internal temp reaches 160, about 45 minutes. Remove from the grill/oven.
    5. Heat up the last section of butter and drizzle over the chicken.
