Putting the sage butter under the skin will keep the breasts moist and adding a wonderful taste. Very Easy!


  1. In a small bowl blend together the sage, butter, and lemon juice with a fork until smooth. Add the salt and pepper to taste and set 2 tablespoons of the mixture aside.
  2. Rub the remaining butter mixture underneath the skin on each breast. Do not remove the skin. Rub the with the 2 tablespoons of the remaining butter mixture on the outside of the breast.
  3. Place the chicken skin side up on a roasting pan. Bake the breast in a preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until the juice runs clear. Place the chicken on a warm plate and deglaze the roasting with the dry white wine. Simmer the pan juices a bit to reduce and serve over the chicken.
