    stick (1/2 c) butter, at room temperature

Heat oven to 425F. Pat the chicken dry. Mix the butter, garlic, salt, herbs and pepper to taste in a bowl using your hands. Smear it all over the chicken, inside and out, stuffing some of the butter mixture beneath the skin. Place chicken in a roasting pan; roast 20 minutes. Spoon some of the pan drippings over the chicken. Add the wine to the roasting pan. Reduce heat to 375F; roast 22-30 mins more, depending on the size of the bird. Turn off the oven; open the doorn slightly. Let chicken finish cooking, about 15 mins. on its own. Pierce where the thigh and breast meet; the juices should run clear.
