Gravy

When you roast a chicken you get these incredibly flavorful pan drippings - perfect for turning into gravy. Remove the bird from the pan to rest while you get this going.

Place the pan over medium high heat. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon flour and whisk into the pan juices until you have a brown paste. Optional: Pour in a splash of wine, beer, or cider for some added flavor. Add in about a quart of broth and continue to whisk, scrapping up any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Simmer a few minutes until thick and melt in a little butter, if desired.

How to

carve a roast chicken Place the chicken, breast side up, on a cutting board. Bend back the leg and push up on the joint to pull the leg piece away. Cut through the joint to remove. Repeat with the second leg..

Repeat with the second wing.

With the breasts still facing up, feel for the breastbone in the middle. Run your knife along one side as close as possible. Gently pull the meat away from the carcass as you cut. Repeat with the second breast.

If desired, slice the breasts into smaller pieces by cutting across.

Use the tip of your knife to find the point where the thigh and drumstick meet and cut through this joint to separate into two pieces. Repeat with the second leg.

Pull the wing from the body and using a pair of scissors, cut at the joint.

Save the carcass for soup and bones for stock!
