garlic butter . . . do I add garlic to the butter and mix together?See, I said it was a daft one!
yes, you do. You can add herbs too if you like.
Which bit is confusing you lucysmam? [grin
Finely chop/puree your garlic, soften your butter and mix the two together.
cheers lilolil, I thought so! It just seemed too good to be true.I am baffled actually that I had to ask rather than just get on with it!
pmsl fatzak, yeah I know! it just seemed a bit simple!I'm getting there, just slowly!
what are you making?
What are you using it for?Ilike to add garlic and sage to butter to put in the skin of a chicken.Yum.
It was just for some bread to go with spag bol tonight, rather than buying a garlic baguette, I thought I would try garlic butter on homemade breadnever done that to a chicken Victorian, do you literally just put it under the skin of the chicken?
Yeah, I cut the skin eietehr side of the rbeast bone, and make a pocket, then put the butter in, then cook.It makes the chicken nice and mosit and gives it a nice flavour.
oooh, I have a chicken in my shopping this time around, will give it a go! can't be too hard to make a pocket in chicken skin
My DD can do it, she is 7.It's really simple, when you cut a line down the breast bone, just enough to cut through the skin, not the chicken breast, then poke your fingers under the skin.
homemade garlic bread so much better than shop=bought IMO
Oh, well if your 7yo dd can do it, i'm confident I could too Victorian lilolil, I have never done it before! Am hoping it's ok!
I'd wrap it in tinfoil before you put it in the oven.
the bread lilolil? or the chicken?
sorry, I meant the bread.
thought so, just checking! am off to start it in a few mins, fingers crossed it works out!
you can freeze garlic butter too!I roll my into a log and wrap in clingfilm. Cut off a slice when needed.
cheers murphyslaw, that's my learned something new for today covered! Good idea actually, would save me faffing around in kitchen any more than I already do
