  1. Place butter, thyme, sage and parmesan in a bowl.  Season with salt and pepper.  Mix well.  Using your fingers, gently loosen chicken skin on each piece of chicken.  Push butter mixture under skin.  Place chicken on a large plate. Cover. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until butter is firm.
  2. Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced.  Line a baking tray with baking paper.  Place chicken on tray.  Spray with oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Reduce oven temperature to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Baste chicken with pan juices.  Bake for a further 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Place beans in a microwave-safe bowl.  Add 1 tablespoon cold water.  Cover.  Microwave on high (100%) for 1 minute or until tender.  Drain.  Refresh under cold water.  Drain.
  4. Make white balsamic dressing: Place oil, vinegar and chives in a screw-top jar.  Season with salt and pepper.  Secure lid.  Shake to combine.
  5. Place lettuce, cucumber, beans and radish in a bowl.  Drizzle over dressing.  Toss to combine.
