Meal No. 1574: Herb Roasted Chicken with Savory Pan Gravy
Another nice gathering of Roediger House regulars occurred this past Saturday night, and on the table we had herb roasted chicken with savory pan gravy, along with smashed sweet potatoes and buttered garden peas.
Because I didn't get it together in time for the previous evening's movie night, I went ahead and did a freezer of chocolate frostie ice cream early in the day so it would have time to set up before the dinner hour. (I made the base the day before but that's as far as I'd gotten.) It was pretty tasty!
