  3. Drizzle chicken with olive oil, using your hands to coat all sides.
  4. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then rub in crushed garlic. Sprinkle chopped sage on top. Arrange onions throughout the pan. Place slices of butter on top of chicken, throughout the pan.
  5. Roast chicken for 33-37 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken pieces.

  7. Once you have the chicken and rice cooking, make the browned butter sauce about 5 minutes before you are ready to serve.
