Hosting with precautions

Choosing to share special moments with friends requires prudence in preparation and execution. Having in mind varied dietary needs, selecting a menu can the tricky. This recipe is suitable for those with gluten sensitivity. In this recipe, I use Argo Corn Starch since it’s gluten-free. Making gravy with Argo Corn Starch ensures the gluten-intolerant can enjoy the deliciousness with everyone else.

Argo Corn Starch for the smoothest gravies

Lumpy gravy is the worst and many gravy recipes fail because of clumpy flour bits. You can replace flour for Argo Corn Starch in any gravy recipe. I’ve been using Argo Corn Starch for years to make gravy and thicken sauces. It’s my go-to ingredient for smooth, lump-free gluten-free gravies. And it is the best ingredient to thicken clear sauces without making it cloudy or leaving an aftertaste.

Ingredients

  • 3 lb chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp rubbed sage
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Carrot celery, and garlic cloves to garnish

Garlic Gravy

  • 1 c chicken stock
  • 1 c whole milk
  • 1 garlic cloves grated* see notes
  • 5 tbsp salted butter
  • 3 tbsp Argo Corn Starch
  • 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and white pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Blend the salt, black pepper, dried herbs, butter, and olive oil. Rub the chicken with the seasoning and place it in a roasting pan.
  • Roast the chicken uncovered for 40-45 minutes. The internal temperature will read 165 degrees and the juices will be clear when done.

Garlic gravy

  • Mix the Argo Corn Starch with 1/4 c of chicken stock to make a slurry. To a saucepan over low heat, add the butter to melt slowly. Follow with the garlic and allow it to heat slowly in the fat until fragrant then stir in the poultry seasoning powder. Pour in the remaining chicken stock, milk, and slurry.
  • Turn up the heat to medium and whisk briskly to blend. When the gravy thickens, turn off the heat and season to taste with salt and white pepper to taste. Serve alongside the chicken thighs.

Notes

*Don’t replace the garlic powder with more fresh garlic. One clove of garlic is plenty for this gravy. More than one clove will overpower it and taste bitter. The garlic powder intensified the garlic flavor without overpowering.
