Transform chicken in minutes with this simple herby butter recipe that'll please even the fussiest of eaters.

  • 1 Remove the tray from the oven and leave the chicken breasts to rest for 2 minutes before serving.
  • 2 Pre-heat the oven to 180C, 350F, Gas Mark 4. Mix the butter and mixed herbs together with a good pinch of salt.
