Unlike many of the recipes in this collection, this one does not use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Rather, it uses whole, skin-on chicken breasts and when they are baked, they become wonderfully browned and crispy.

The secret is a simple garlic butter mixture rubbed under the skin.

Serve with oven roasted potatoes and green beans.
