Roast Chicken, Potato, Greens
Roast chicken is one of the greatest family meals ever. The kids love it, I love it, it's healthy and delicious. This is my recipe for the greatest roast ever. Once you understand the method you can turn this into roast anything!! The gravy works for beef, lamb, pork or chicken. Just swap the wines over and the stocks over!! Maybe for lamb use rosemary instead of thyme, for pork use bay and sage, for beef use them all!!
Once the chook is done, remove from the roasting tray and cover loosely with foil. Put the roasting pan on a burner and use the back of spoon to mush all the roasted veg up. Make sure you squeeze the gooey centre out of the garlic cloves. Add a splash of white wine and cook for 1 minute then add 3 TS flour. keep stirring and then add the flour. Now keep stirring. It should look mushy and paste like. Add some fresh thyme and then add the stock [1 cup at a time] as it thickens add a little more until you have the right consistency. Season with salt and pepper and then strain to serve. I always have some homemade stock in the freezer that I freeeze in batches, then just microwave to thaw and use for gravy, stews, risotto etc..
