Oven Roasted Chicken with Lemon Garlic Butter


What is the best way to store oven roasted chicken?

Once fully cooled, refrigerate any leftovers for up to 5 days. If you have lots of leftovers, it’s best to keep it in the roasting pan and cover it with foil. For easier storage, though, you can just shred the chicken and place it in an airtight container. To reheat it, pop it into the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until warm.

Prep the Oven and Lemon Butter
