Roasted Garlic Chicken with Gravy and Green Beans

Went to Reasors and took my time roaming around, investigating all the gluten free available foods. Now, I’ve done this many time’s before but I’ve always been in a hurry and very anxious about what to look for. Today I just put everything out of my mind and just enjoyed the process. I really love my local store and feel like I’m finally learning my way around now. Today I found a couple of things that make me really happy. Grass feed beef and free range all natural chicken. I know it’s more expensive BUT my body can’t handle all the trash they feed the animals and inject into our meat products. I hate the idea that they add gluten into most meats now and that I have to be very careful and check everything first and pay more. Thank God for farmers whole grow and raise safe food to eat — at Kathleens Kitchen.

Here is one of the free range chickens I picked up today.
Enjoy, we did :)

1 whole chicken. I used a 4.5 pd free range chicken
2 Tb of melted butter rubbed all over the chicken inside and out.
2 Tb Tessemae’s All Natural Roasted Chopped Garlic Mediterranean or 1 whole bulb of roasted garlic smashed and rubbed all over chicken inside and out.
Salt and pepper to your taste.

6 to 6.5 – 2 hours 25 minutes

6.5 to 7 – 2 hours 35 minutes

NOTE: These times are for unstuffed birds. Add 15 minutes to the total cooking time if you’re roasting a stuffed chicken. And as with the chicken itself, make sure the stuffing reaches a temperature of at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Gravy
Pour juices in a fat separator and then add the juice minus the fat back into a pan. Bring to a boil and add 2-3 Tb of potato starch and stir till thickened. Salt and pepper to your taste. Pour over your chicken and enjoy.

Green Beans
I like to keep precooked bacon in the fridge so I can add them to my green beans or salads or what ever floats my boat at the time :)
Love me some green beans with BACON! :)
