Halogen Baked Garlic Butter Chicken

Garlic Butter Chicken is oozing with a silky garlic butter glaze and fragrant zesty lemons. Is there anything nicer than the smell of garlic butter basting the chicken and making it full of flavour and crispy skinned deliciousness. I've used Chicken drumsticks which are cheap and tasty but you could use thighs or breast whichever you and your family prefers. You could even use it on a full Chicken if you fancy. The choice is yours. This can also be cooked in a conventional oven - I've added the timing/ temp etc at the end of the recipe. The step by step picture guide let's you follow the recipe easily and allows you to tailor it to suit you and your families tastes.
