To check chicken for doneness, prick leg with knife and press to see juices. If the juices run clear, then the chicken is done. Remove from oven and let sit for 15 minutes. Remove roasted vegetables to a side dish and keep warm in oven. Place roasting pan on stove burner over medium heat. Add wine and chicken stock. Stir and rub bottom of pan to scrape up brown bits. Bring to a simmer and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot
