Cilantro Roasted Chicken

I have tons of cilantro growing the garden.. I was roasting a chicken and incorporated some cilantro... I am glad I did... IT WAS GLORIOUS! 

1 Roasting Chicken, Sliced down the middle on the breast side
1/2 Stick of Organic Butter 
1 Cup Cilantro 
5-8 Garlic 
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Olive Oil 
1 Onion, Sliced 

Line the bottom of your pan with the sliced onions... 

Wash and dry the cilantro... 

Combine the butter, cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor... 

Lift the skin of the chicken and add half of the herbed butter in between the skin and the flesh of the chicken ... Rub the remaining butter all over and around the chicken... Drizzle with a bit of Olive Oil to get that browning effect... Bake in a 425 oven until the chicken breast reaches 160-165 degrees....
