  • In a roasting pan, put the shallots and garlic and toss with olive oil. To make the chicken skin crisp more, pat the chicken using paper towels. Rub the chicken well with herb butter using a spoon and sprinkle it with salt and fresh pepper.
  • This time, put the chicken in the oven and roast it within 40 minutes. After it, change the temperature into 375 degrees and continue to roast within 20 minutes or until you see it turns brown until done.
  • In a flat plate, transfer the chicken and shallots then cover it with foil. After that, pour the fat on the bottom of a pan then leave the brown bake-on bits. In a medium-high heat stove, put the chicken stock, let it boil and put it with mustard. Mix the brown bits and stock and cook it until its liquid would reduce by half. Turn off the heat and stir it with some butter.
