  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F.
  • 2
    Cut potatoes into halves, or into quarters if larger; place cut side down in 10-inch cast iron skillet. Sprinkle potatoes with dash salt. Layer about 5 lemon slices over top.
  • 3
    Pat chicken dry with paper towels; remove any giblets. Stuff cavity of chicken with any remaining lemon slices. In small bowl, stir together sage, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, the pepper and olive oil. Rub sage-garlic mixture beneath breast skin of chicken and all over outside of chicken skin. Place chicken on bed of potatoes and lemon.
  • 4
    Roast about 1 hour 30 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh reads 165°F. Let chicken rest about 15 minutes before carving.

Expert Tips

  • It's okay if the chicken is a few ounces more or less than 4 pounds. You may just want to check the internal temperature sooner or later, depending on the size of your chicken.
  • I like to use a mini food processor to chop the sage and garlic so that it's super fine before mixing them with the salt, pepper and oil.
  • You can use another ovenproof pan for this meal if you don’t have a cast iron skillet. Just lightly oil the bottom of whatever pan you use.
