"Presented here in this recipe is a homey rendition of chicken that is flavored with parsley, lemon, sage, and garlic. It's comfort food at its best."
Heat oven to 475°. Rinse chicken under cold water; pat dry with paper towels. Peel lemon, avoiding white pith. Finely chop lemon peel, sage, and garlic together; place in a bowl. Add butter and 1 tsp. salt. Stir to combine. Quarter the peeled lemon; set aside.
Using your fingers and a small, sharp knife, loosen skin of chicken from breasts and thighs. Slip butter mixture between skin and flesh, spreading it evenly. Rub skin with oil; season skin and cavity with salt and pepper to taste. Stuff with quartered lemon, parsley, and 1 quartered onion. Tie legs together with kitchen twine, if you like.
Put remaining quartered onion and carrots into center of roasting pan and place chicken on top of them. Roast for 20 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 400˚. Continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh (without touching bone) reads 165°, about 1 hour more. Transfer chicken to a platter; sprinkle with fleur de sel; let rest for 10 minutes before carving.

This method is my favorite way to roast chicken, but I had never used this combination in the butter before. Delicious!
The flavour of the sage, lemon & garlic permeated the chicken beautifully! What a treat! I had some left over and rubbed it on the skin instead of the oil. When I roasted it I tented the chicken with foil so the mixture would not burn. Delicious! Thank you for another keeper ForeverMama! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
