Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Delicious Gravy
Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Delicious Gravy is everything you want when enjoying a roast chicken dinner. Brushed with butter, fresh rosemary, salt and pepper, the chicken is roasted over vegetables and stock so the gravy is made right in the pan while the chicken roasts.
When you serve up juicy and moist sliced chicken and roast potato dinner with vegetables, gravy is an absolute must and I’m going to tell you how to get the most delicious and easy gravy without all the work.
All you have to do is add carrots, celery, parsnip (this adds a lovely, natural sweetness to the gravy), onion and garlic to a roasting pan, then chicken stock is added. The chicken is set on top of the vegetables and as it roasts, it’s juices drip into the stock and as the vegetables cook, they flavor the gravy. It’s so easy, right?
The gravy is thickened with cornstarch instead of flour. Adding raw flour to a sauce (before allowing it to cook in the pan in butter or oil) will result in pasty, flour-tasting gravy. Cornstarch thickens perfectly with no effect on the delicious taste of the gravy.
I am a crispy skin eater. Roast chicken, roast turkey, I love them both. The first time I had a deep fried turkey, I just about keeled over with delight.
Meat thermometer is very important
