Baked Garlic & Herb Chicken Recipe - Roast Chicken with Garlic, Herb Butter

I love experimenting with baked chicken. Not only it taste great but when you are baking or roasting chicken in oven you dont have to bother much about the oil content, because it doesn't need too much oil. So it is partly healthy, but mostly it is just yummy. But this recipe is not completely healthy because it has quite a bit of butter in them and that makes it really really tasty and moist..
