Oven roasted chicken, glazed in apple cider cooked with stone fruits. All served with a stone fruit infused pan gravy. Apples are in right now. We felt it was only natural to use apples to infuse the roast to get the best flavours of foods currently in season. The apple cider gives the chicken a faint flavour of apples and keeps the chicken succulent and juicy. It gives the outer skin a beautiful crisp and golden colour for a warm comforting roast. Perfect for family gatherings and thanksgiving- it doesn’t get more festive.
This is our first attempt at using apple cider to baste a whole chicken with. It would also be perfect for turkey! After coming across a few other posts on brining meat with apple cider we knew we had to try it. We love how this turned out! Simple apple cider reduced and poured over the chicken every few minutes. It doesn’t take much to make a meal taste great. Sometimes you just need few ingredients and some time. Let the oven do all the work 🙂
Our entire thanksgiving menu is focused around seasonal fruits; apples, plums, and nectarines. We wanted to intensify those flavours by highlight them in a variety of ways. Starting with the main course, our roasted chicken! Serve it with some of our seasonal sides like these grilled green beans!https://thecommunalfeast.com/2019/10/spicy-grilled-green-beans-with-caramelized-onions/
