Texas Butter Roasted Chicken

1 whole 5-6 lb. chicken

1 bottle of Stubb's Texas Butter {or anything equivalent}

1 whole lemon



extra melted butter for basting

1.  Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

2.  To prepare the chicken, remove any giblets in the chicken cavity {may come in a bag}.  Rinse the chicken with cold water and pat dry.

3.  Place the chicken on a wire rack in a large roasting pan.  Slice the lemon in half and place inside the chicken cavity.

4.  Inject the chicken with the Texas Butter, under all joints and under all sides of the chicken's skin. Generously salt and pepper the chicken.

5.  Bake for 2 hours or until juices between the leg and thigh run clear.  During the last hour of roasting, baste with melted butter every 20 minutes.

6.  Allow the chicken to rest at least 15 minutes before carving.
