"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

2 tbsp butter
1 tsp dried sage
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 whole chicken (3 lbs)
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 onion peeled
2 cups chicken broth
6 oz. new potatoes parboiled
3 bell peppers, cut into quarters
2 medium zucchini cut into chunks
1 red onion sliced
1 tbsp. olive oil
flat leave parsley

Preheat oven to 375* In a small bowl, combine butter, sage, garlic and pepper. Carefully loosen the skin from the chicken breast, be careful not to tear it.

Spread half of the herb mixture under the skin, rub the rest on top. Sprinkle with rosemary. Place onion into chicken cavity and tie legs together with kitchen string.

Place the chicken on a rack in a roasting pan. Cover pan with foil and roast for 1 hour.

Uncover chicken and roast until juices run clear when meat is pierced, about 40 minutes longer. Transfer to a serving dish. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

Meanwhile, place the parboiled new potatoes, peppers, zucchini and onion slices on a separate baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and then roast for 35-40 minutes until cooked and crisp around the edges.
