Roast Chicken & Gravy
1.35kg/ 3lb. Whole chicken
1-2 tbsp. flour
300ml/ ½ pint hot stock
1 chicken stock cube, crumbled.
Place the chicken on the rack of the Microwave Steamer and position on the tray.
Wrap the end of both drumsticks in a smooth piece of tinfoil to prevent burning
Place a 4″ x 4″ piece of tinfoil across the lower breast and cavity opening. Sprinkle with seasoning and cover with the dome.
Cook on HIGH for 8 mins per pound (3 lb chicken – 24 min).
Remove from the oven and stand for 4 minutes per pound i.e. (in this case, 12 min).
Do not remove the cover for this standing time (For larger chickens cook breast down for the first half of the cooking time.)
To make gravy, remove the chicken and rack from the tray and add enough flour to absorb the fat.
Gradually stir in the stock and stock cube.
Cook on HIGH for 2-3 min. or until it boils.
Season to taste, and serve with steamed veg.
