Chili-Roasted Chicken with Roasted Garlic Gravy

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
4 tablespoons all purpose flour
4 1/4 teaspoons chili powder
1 (4 1/2-pound) chicken, rinsed, patted dry
12 unpeeled garlic cloves

For the gravy:
2 cups canned low-salt chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon dried rubbed sage

Preheat oven to 375°F. Stir 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons flour and 3 teaspoons chili powder in small bowl to blend. Rub butter mixture all over chicken; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place chicken in small roasting pan; scatter garlic around chicken in pan.

Roast chicken 40 minutes. Transfer garlic cloves to small plate. Return chicken to oven and roast until juices run clear when thigh is pierced with small knife, basting occasionally, about 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel garlic and mash. Stir remaining 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons flour in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat 1 minute. Gradually whisk in broth and wine. Add sage, garlic and remaining 1 1/4 teaspoons chili powder. Boil until reduced to 1 cup, whisking occasionally, about 8 minutes. Season gravy to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer chicken to platter. Serve chicken with gravy. Serves 4
