Posted November 30, 2017 11:06:23After all of the years of using herbs and spices, I finally had a recipe for a perfect herb cranked up to 11. 

For the crusted chickens, I used basil leaves, mint, salt, and a bit of butter. 

The chicken was cooked in the oven at 400 degrees for about 3 hours. 

This was the last of the night. 

I knew the chickens would be a hit with my neighbors. 

My husband and I were also both feeling a bit depressed at the time and had some of our favorite recipes in the freezer. 

It was time to get out and see the world for what it was. 

Here’s what you need to know: 1. 

A lot of people make a chicken with garlic and onions, but I wanted to use my favorite spices, so I went with basil. 

Instead of the onions, I use a lot of basil leaves and the basil powder to flavor the chicken. 


To make the cranked-up herb crud, I chopped up my herbs and garlic. 

That means that instead of cutting up a bunch of herbs, I just chop them up into bite sized pieces. 


In a saucepan, I put in some salt. 

Now you don’t want to go too overboard here. 

Just enough to make the salt taste great and not go over the top. 


Then I put the garlic, basil, and butter in the crockpot. 

After about 5 minutes, the chicken was done. 


While it was cooking, I cooked my chicken and herbs into the mixture. 


Finally, the next day, I tossed the mixture into the crocks of rice and the chicken and spices were done.
