Roasted chicken



 over 1 year ago

I have replaced my great american recipe card. The recipe is either called Roasted Chicken or Roast Chicken. The ingredients are cornstarch, lemon juice, garlic cloves. If anyone has it, can you please share the recipe. I appreciate it very much. I was planning to make this dish tomorrow for my family.

Garlic Roasted Chicken with Gravy

Servings: 4

Prep time: 10 min | Cook time: 1 hour 30 min | Total time: 1 hour 55 min

•3 1/2 lb. whole chicken
•1 lemon, halved
•1 onion, halved
•4 sprigs fresh rosemary
•6 garlic cloves, peeled
•1/2 tsp. salt (kosher/sea is best)
•1/4 tsp. pepper
•1 cup chicken broth
•2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
•1 tbsp. cornstarch or arrowroot
•3 tbsp. white wine
•1 shallot, finely chopped
•1/4 tsp. dried sage
•1/4 cup water

The Process
1.Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (F); spray a roasting pan with non-stick spray (if your roasting pan has a rack, spray that as well). Remove the giblets and neck. Rinse chicken inside and out under cold water; pat dry.
2.Place the lemon, onion, rosemary, thyme, and 5 of the garlic cloves in the body cavity. Place the chicken, breast-side up, in the roasting pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. of salt and pepper and rub it in a bit. Roast 30 minutes.
3.Pour the broth and lemon juice over the chicken. Reduce the oven temp to 325 degrees. Roast for about an hour, basting every 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and the juices run clear when the thigh is pierced in the thickest part, and a thermometer inserted in the thigh registers 180 degrees. Transfer chicken to cutting board; let stand 15 minutes.
4.Meanwhile, mince the remaining garlic clove. Pour the pan juices into a medium saucepan, skimming off any fat (there really wasn’t a lot so I didn’t bother) and reserving 1 tbsp. of the juices in a small bowl. Dissolve the cornstarch in the small bowl of reserved liquid. Add the wine, minced garlic, shallot, sage, 1/4 tsp. salt, and water to the saucepan; bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and whisk in the dissolved cornstarch; cook, stirring constantly, until the gravy thickens, about 1 minute. Remove the lemon, onion, and herbs from the cavity and discard; carve the chicken and serve with gravy.

Note: Obviously, you’ll want to remove/not eat the skin if you’re trying to cut the most calories/fat, but otherwise leave it on because it’s yummy!
