This past Thanksgiving weekend has been full of poultry consumption. Friday, we had chicken florentine. Saturday and Sunday, turkey. Today, roasted chicken. I’m pretty sure tomorrow may come roaring in with a poultry induced hangover. In fact, the coma may already be setting in!

Today, I cooked the roasted chicken for the kids, hubalicious and I. My kitchen had been out of commission for the past week and a half while our builder tore it all out to replace water damaged drywall and cabinets.

After a week and a half of eating take-out or just eating away from home, I was all over the opportunity to cook in my own kitchen again. My family certainly wasn’t complaining.

Being the Thanksgiving weekend, I decided to make something a little more elaborate. A Herbes de Provence Roasted Chicken with all the traditional Thanksgiving fixings.

I skimmed my box of spices and flavourful mix packs, pulled out the Club House Herbes de Provence Roasted Chicken Flavourful Recipe Mix and started cooking. The chicken took no time at all to prepare. Before I knew it, I had it all in the roasting pan and I was kicking back with my feet up relaxing.
Ok, ok… I lied! I wasn’t relaxing… but I wish I was! 

Herbes de Provence Roasted Chicken
Whole Chicken (defrosted)
1 pkg of Club House Herbes de Provence Roasted Chicken Flavourful Recipe Mix
1 bottle of beer (preferably a pale lager)
1 cup of water
2 tbsp Olive Oil

In a mixing bowl, combine the Herbes de Provence Flavourful Recipe Mix, beer, water and olive oil.
Place the chicken in the roasting pan and pour the liquid mixture over the chicken.

I cooked my chicken for 2.5 hours at 350F. Depending on the size and weight of the whole chicken you purchase, you may need to adjust cooking times. Please keep that in consideration if you choose to prepare this meal.

Once done, I sliced up the chicken and served it alongside stuffing, mashed potatoes and corn.

If you’re looking for the perfect gravy to accompany this meal, preserve 1 cup of the juices from your roasting pan to use in your gravy.

Poultry Gravy
2 packets of Club House 25% Less Salt Gravy Mix for Chicken
1 cup water
1 cup liquid juices from roasting pan

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to boil.
Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer until thickened.

As delicious as this meal was, it is not one that I would make on a regular basis. It won’t be entering our weekly meal plan roster. However, if I’m ever entertaining… this is one meal I wouldn’t think twice about serving my guests.

Tomorrow, we are going back to the basics. The weekday meals will be much more simple.
On the meal plan this week, we have:

Simplistic meals can still be quite delicious!

    Nicole, sorry that your kitchen was out of commission! However, you did a beautiful job of the chicken! I have to say I am lazy in that I purchase a prepared/roasted chicken from the store, but this looks worth the effort!
