Directions:
Preheat oven to 450. Cut the chicken in half. Arrange chicken, skin side up, in a roasting pan. Combine butter, lemon juice, oregano, rosemary, sage, and salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix well. Brush the chicken with the butter mixture. Roast until the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. Broil 6 inches from heat for 3 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Variation: To save time, buy a chicken already cut up or buy chicken-breast halves or legs and thighs. Reduce roasting and broiling times as needed. For added flavor, toss sliced onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil and roast along side the chicken.
