Roast Chicken with Apple Onion Gravy⁣⁣

I have honed this roast chicken recipe over many years, and it has become a tried and true family favorite any time of year. ⁣

Make sure you save the carcass for bone broth!⁣


1 medium-size whole chicken (if you have a small or large chicken, adjust cooking time accordingly)⁣

2 tbsp butter, melted⁣

1 apple, sliced thinly⁣

1 large yellow onion, sliced thinly⁣

1/2 tsp salt⁣

1/4 tsp pepper⁣

Dried Italian herbs (optional)⁣

Some fruit or vegetables for stuffing the chicken cavity (I like celery and lemons, but anything will do)⁣

Preheat oven to 450°.⁣

Line the bottom of a roasting pan with the sliced onion and apple. Mix the melted butter with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of the Italian herbs, if using.⁣

Place the chicken in the roasting pan. Rub the chicken down inside and out with the butter mixture. Stuff with fruits or veggies. Tie legs together with kitchen twine.⁣

Place chicken in oven, roast for 45 minutes. Turn oven down to 350°, roast for another 30 minutes. Remove chicken from oven, move to a platter, and let rest for 10 minutes.⁣

Put all the roasted apple, onion, and chicken juices from the roasting pan into a blender. Blend until smooth, and pour into a gravy dish.⁣

Carve the chicken, and serve with the apple onion gravy. Dig in and enjoy!⁣
