Citrus Herb Butter

This compound Citrus Herb Butter is good on so many things.


Compound butter is simply butter mixed with herbs and spices for more compound flavor.

It’s good on chicken, on pork, on turkey, on potatoes, on broccoli and green beans, on carrots, on toast… hell, it might be good on a shoe. It could be good on anything really.

It’s easy to put together, and it stores fine in the fridge for a couple weeks – it won’t last that long anyways.

FACT: I use this Citrus Herb Butter on my oven roasted Thanksgiving Turkey every year – yum. yum. YUM!

Another FACT: This makes for THEE BEST Whole Pressure Cooker Bundt Pan Chicken you could EVER have in your Instant Pot or other pressure cooker.
