"This is an easy to make, flavorful baste that will make your chicken crispy outside while holding in the juices. Red wine, butter, and seasonings combine to form this magical basting sauce. It's great on game hens too."
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the red wine, butter, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, sage, lemon juice and hot pepper sauce, if desired. Stir all together well and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
