Give your chicken extra flavor! This dish is delicious and a pretty choice for a dinner party or an elegant family meal. I have also made this succesfully with thighs and whole chicken.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat oven to 425*; then rinse chicken with cold water and blot dry. Rub chicken with salt and pepper. With fingers seperate (but do not completely detach) skin from flesh to form pocket. Ease sage leaves under skin; press gently to smooth skin back into place. If desired, insert toothpicks through skin and into flesh to keep skin stretched and help prevent shrinkage while cooking.
- 2In shallow casserole dish, arrange chicken skin side up; brush with butter. Bake, basting occasionally with pan drippings, until fork tender - about 40 minutes. Transfer to platter and keep warm.
- 3To pan drippings, add chicken broth & white wine, stir until blended and bring to boil and cook until reduced to 1/2. Skim any fat off top and spoon sauce over chicken.
- 4Garnish with sage leaves or other fresh herbs - Enjoy!
