Easy Roast Chicken w/ Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Gravy
Such an easy and comforting meal that comes together pretty quickly. A great idea for weeknight dinners as the weather gets colder.
I started with a couple chicken pieces . Whatever you have is find . Some chopped onion , celery , garlic and some sprigs of fresh thyme from my herb garden.
In the oven it went with a splash of water at 350 for about an hour
While the chicken cooked , I peeled and scrubbed some potatoes and boiled them until they were soft when poked with a fork .
In a piece of aluminum foil I roasted some garlic with the chicken about 25 minutes .
Drained the potatoes and squeezed a couple cloves of the roasted garlic into the potatoes . Added some butter , whole milk , spoonful or two of cream cheese and salt and pepper .
When the chicken was done I made a quick gravy with a bit of broth and bisto and flour .
Easy and yummy dinner in about an hour with very little actual cooking !
