“A chicken is the closest relative to a T. Rex.”

For your edification – The Tyrannosaurus rex, related to the chicken, was somewhat larger that a chicken.  It was about 40 ft long, 12 ft tall, and weighed about 15 tons.  There is some speculation that it had feathers.  Why not.

The fact that it could only run about 12 miles per hour was a saving grace for humans.  If there were no chickens in the area for dinner, a T. Rex could substitute.  Like most other animals, it probably tasted like chicken.  I think it’s time for a recipe and a little less coffee in the morning.


6 T soft butter

6 cloves garlic, crushed

1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped

1 T oregano or tarragon or rosemary leaves

4 chicken breasts, with skin and bones


Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the butter, garlic, parsley, and herb of your choice in a small bowl.

Tuck the butter mixture under the skin of the chicken breasts.  Place the chicken breasts into a baking dish and roast for about 25 minutes.  That’s it!


This dish was so delicious with the oregano that I can’t wait to try it with all the different herb options.

Also, the greatest thing about this dish is that you can do the prep ahead of time and put it into the fridge until you’re ready to bake it.  That would be about 25 plus minutes before you’re going to dine.  The butter will not be soft, if you follow this plan, so allow a few extra minutes for the chicken, or T.Rex, to cook through.
