      Wonderful combination of flavors for a roasted chicken. We brined a whole, 7-lb chicken, and roasted it for about 1 hour, 15 minutes, and it was absolutely to die for (as was the chicken stock we made from the bones). Made the recipe exactly as directed, and it was absolutely superb. We'll make this often - thanks, Barb!

      An excellent recipe for chicken breast. The lemon slices and skin keep the meat moist. The lemon and sage are a wonderful compliment to the flavor of the meat. I used the rubbed sage as it was what I had. Served with garlic green beans, this was a delicious meal.

      Great recipe! The chicken was tender and full of flavor. I took the recommendation of another reviewer, and cooked for 30 minutes at 400, then 45 minutes longer at 350. I also put the chopped garlic under the skin, along with the sage and lemon. Definately a keeper for me!
