Expert Tips

Use any combination of fresh herbs in this recipe. And remember that a little bit of rosemary delivers lots of flavor.

Rubbing the sage and garlic into the chicken under the skin allows flavor to permeate the flesh. Adding the last bit of herb rub at the end of the roasting time gives the chicken a burst of fresh flavor.

Center chicken on a decorative platter surround with Roasted Butternut Squash and Potatoes. Garnish with sprigs of sage and parsley
