I sometimes make this dish for company. It’s easy, delicious, not expensive and an elegant crowd pleaser. This peasant fall of the bone chicken lets you enjoy your guests while it slowly cooks and fills the house with a great aroma.
Lemon & Sage Butter Slow Roasted Chicken Quarters
4 Chicken quarters
3 Tbs butter
4 large cloves of garlic roughly chopped
1 large shallot sliced
1/4 cup sage leaves chopped roughly
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken stock
juice from 1 lemon

Heat the oven to 325°F. Salt and pepper all the chicken pieces before cooking. In a dutch oven heat the butter and brown the chicken, skin side down until rich in color. Turn turn the chicken over add the garlic, shallots and sage and continue cooking for about 5 minutes. Add the white wine, lemon juice and then the stock. Place the lid on and place in the oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. If at any point you think you need to add more stock, do so. Serve with crusty bread and enjoy… Delicious!!!
