Meal No. 1818: Herb-Roasted Whole Chicken with Savory Pan Gravy
Friday was a perfect night for a feast-like meal, with Kristen and Mookie over, and I hope it did not disappoint. The main feature was a delicious herb-roasted whole chicken, and from the pan I extracted the drippings to get a savory herbilicious gravy. Macaroni and cheese casserole and buttered garden peas seemed a natural fit to go with it all, and I couldn't help but indulge yet again in the buttermilk'd and buttery biscuit hoecakes that I've been trying to perfect.
