Method
Combine all ingredients for chosen butter and chill until required.
Stuff butter under the skin of chicken or turkey breasts to keep the breast moist during cooking. Using fingers and working from the base of each breast, gently seperate the skin from the breast meat to form two pockets. Stuff a handful of chosen butter into each pocket and from the outside, massage the butter evenly over the meat. Roast the bird in the usual way.
Tip :
For a special Christmas idea, spread flavoured butter onto a baking paper lined tray and chill until firm. Using a star shaped cutter (or whatever shape you like) cut out shapes and place on a serving plate.
