Nonni’s Roasted Chicken
Wash and dry chickens. Place in a large roasting pan (big enough for both birds). Rub each bird all over with the olive oil. Fill the cavities of each bird with 2 whole cloves of garlic, and ½ bunch each of rosemary and sage, reserve some herbs for the tops of the birds. Rub the remaining chopped garlic and herbs on the outside of the chickens. Season with salt and pepper.
Roast at 325 degrees until legs move easily (2 hours approximately). Remove chickens to a platter to rest. Add some the white wine and the chicken broth to the drippings in the pan. Scrape up all the bits of goodness from the pan and simmer. While the ‘au jus’ is simmering, cut each chicken into 8 pieces, place on a serving platter. Serve the sauce separately with the Italian bread for dunking.
