    Delicious! The honey butter cooked all over the veggies in the roasting pan and elevated those too. I’ll definitely make this again

    Awesome! I did it with a whole chicken and added Brussels sprouts to roast as well. DELICIOUS! Can't wait to eat leftovers tomorrow!

    I am eating this chicken as I write this, and I have to say, it is probably the best roast chicken I have ever made! I substituted the butter with olive oil for the herb-butter and it works (i think) just as well! The sauce definitely makes a difference and the idea of putting mustard into your stock is genius!
