Roast Chicken Dinner

SP asked me to roast a chicken for dinner one recent Sunday. I do love a roast chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy.

I didn't think to buy green beans at the store and we didn't have any frozen so I had to sub broccoli. It was fine, but green beans are my favorite veggie with roast chicken.

The skin was crispy and delicious. I never used to eat chicken skin but when I can get it very crispy I love it. I made the gravy by cooking 2 tablespoons butter with 2 heaping tablespoons flour to make a roux, then adding chicken stock and allowing it to thicken. I seasoned the gravy with salt and pepper - simple and tasty.
Pin It!


  1. This looks so comforting! When you get a chance come check me out ;~).

  2. Yum, delicious! I love the look of the mashed potatoes covered by generous lashings of chicken gravy ... mmmmmmmmm, such a nice warm comforty food. I love the chicken skin being so crispy too - that's the first thing I saw when I looked at the photo - I just want to peel it off and eat it! :)

    Hope all is well with baby!

  3. Mmmm... simply roasted chicken and mashed potatoes.. it's just a need sometimes! ;]
