    Bake for 30 minutes and check the temperature of the breast and thigh meat using a meat thermometer. Remove any pieces that register 160°F and return the remaining chicken to the oven. Continue to cook until all of the pieces register 160°F. Remove from oven and set aside to rest for at least 10 minutes.

    1 pound Green Beans; trimmed

    Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat a few tablespoons of Oil. Add the Beans into an even layer and cook without disturbing for 1 minute. Add a few tablespoons of the reserved Compound Butter and sauté for 1-2 more minutes or until Beans are crispy and still bright green.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Use a roaster chicken.
    2. Make a lot of the compound butter and freeze it. It can be used on almost anything!
    3. Put the butter under the skin. It will baste from the inside.
