    I seperate the skin from the breast and then score the breast with a knife. I then mix garlic and herbs with butter and the spread the butter over the breast. Then I put the skin back down and then cover the skin with butter and salt and pepper.

    I also cut and onion and a lemon in half and insert them into the cavity. I cook my stuffing seperate.

    Then I bake it in the oven for the specified time.

    I normally cheat and buy the stuffed one from Icedand. The one that is just breast meat and you cook from frozen

    I also separate the skin from the breast, but not so that it is removed altogether. I just stick my hand underneath it and pull it free from the breast, so it's wearing the skin like shirt instead of being attached the flesh anymore. Then I spread some butter over the breast meat and lay some strips of bacon over that and secure the skin back down.

    Then I rub the skin with oil and season it and bake it slowly in the oven, basting it from time to time. It makes a difference to cook it slowly, as it is juicy and very tender then. Mmmmmm....

    I have been known to do that but sometimes it can make the breasts a bit greasy.

    You lot!!! ooo er!!!!
    I turn a chicken when its cooking to even out its juices (oh there's another one!), it means that the breast is moist and full of flavour.
