Herb Roasted Chicken
1 roasting chicken
fresh sage leaves or ground sage if you don't have fresh
4 lemon wedges
1 large white onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons, melted butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
coursely ground pepper
Please chicken in a greased roasting pan, breast side up. Gently lift skin from breast and arrange sage leaves (as many as you want) or sprinkle lightly with sage if you do not have the leaves. Place four lemon wedges and one quartered onion in the cavity.
In a small bowl, stir together oil, butter, lemon juice and garlic. Brush half the mixture over chicken. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Roast at 375 for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Brush again with butter mixture half way through cooking time. Make sure juices run clear.
Oh and about halfway through the cooking throw in some baby potatoes and they will go great with the chicken!
