Slip Butter Under the Skin of Chicken Breasts

By Cook's Illustrated Published March 2011

Why Do It: Notoriously dry and chalky, roast chicken breasts can be transformed with softened butter. Two tablespoons of unsalted butter mixed with ½ teaspoon salt and spread underneath the skin of a whole breast before roasting will baste the white meat, keeping it juicy while adding flavor.
