Buttery Sage Chicken


  • 4 tablespoons ghee
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 pound whole roasting chicken gizzards/neck removed and skin patted dry


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a food processor, combine all ingredients except chicken. Blend until smooth.
  • Place chicken on a roasting pan, breast side up, and rub down with ghee mixture. Tent with a piece of foil and place in the oven. Roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until cooked through, meat will no longer be pink and juices will run clear. During the last 30 minutes of roasting, remove the foil to get a nice crispy skin.
  • Allow chicken to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
