This Easy Faux Roasted Chicken (5 ingredients!) uses individual chicken pieces instead of a whole chicken, and is cooked at a lower temperature for a juicy and super tender end result. It’s the perfect easy, weeknight meal!
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Set chicken out for 20 minutes while oven preheats.
In a small bowl, combine butter and 1 tablespoon of sage. Use your hands to run half of the butter under the skin of the chicken breasts. Spread the other half of the butter on the outside.
In a bowl, toss remaining sage with poatoes, oil, and a liberal amount of salt.
Spread potatoes on a large sheet pan. Place chicken on top. Liberally season chicken with salt and pepper.
Place chicken in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss the potatoes. Turn the heat up to 450 degrees and roasted until skin is golden brown and crisp, another 15 minutes. If potatoes aren't crispy yet, remove chicken fromthe pan and give the potatoes a toss (drain excess moisture if needed), place the potatoes back in the oven and roast until crisp.
