Roast Turkey Recipe

Ingredients:
1 10 to 12 pound turkey, brined for 24-36 hours
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme, crushed
1 tablespoon finely shredded orange peel
2 tablespoons finely shredded lemon peel
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 large yellow onions, cut into quarters
4 stalks celery, preferably with tender leaves, cut into large pieces
6 to 10 bay leaves
10 cloves garlic, unpeeled
2 cups chick stock or reduced sodium chicken broth
3 small oranges, halved
3 lemons, halved
Sea Salt

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Rinse the brined turkey under cold water and pat it dry, inside and out, with paper towels.

In a small bowl mix together the butter, thyme, orange peel, lemon peel, salt and pepper.

Rub the turkey with the now seasoned butter, inside and out. Fill the cavity with half of the onions, celery, bay leaves and garlic.

Skewer turkey neck skin to back. Tuck drumstick ends under the fold of skin across the tail, if available. If there is no band of skin, tie the drumsticks securely to the tail with clean 100% cotton kitchen string. Twist wing tips under back.

Place turkey, breast side upon a rack in a roasting pan. Insert a ovenproof meat thermometer into the center of an inside thigh muscle. Pour chicken stock into the roasting pan and set in the preheated oven. Cover loosely with foil.

Roast the turkey for 45 minutes undisturbed, then remove foil and roast one hour more, spreading juices over turkey every 20 minutes. Cut string and spoon juices over turkey. Roast for 30 to 60 minutes more or until thermometer registers 145F to 150F. Spoon juices over turkey again.

Add oranges, lemons and remaining onion, celery, bay leaves and garlic to pan surrounding turkey. Roast another 30 minutes more or until the thickest part of the breast reaches an internal temperature of 165 and the thigh juices run clear.

Remove from oven and transfer to a serving platter.

Tent loosely with foil, shiny side down and let sit for 20-30 minutes before serving. Remove fruits and vegetables from inside cavity and discard. Sprinkle pan roasted fruits and vegetables with sea salt before serving

Remove the skin from the chicken pieces.

In a shallow bowl, mix the egg, mayonnaise, mustard, thyme, salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic powder.

Dip each piece of chicken in the mayonnaise mixture to coat thoroughly and then roll in the pork rinds to cover completely.

Place the chicken on the wire rack, making sure there is enough room around each piece for the chicken to roast evenly and crisply.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until the juice runs clear when the thickest part of the thigh is pricked with a knife.

Chicken in Parmagiano Cream Sauce Recipe

Ingredients:
2/3 cup olive oil
1 package of parmesan cheese
1/3 cup heavy cream or heavy whipping cream
1/2 to full stick of butter
1-2 Boneless chicken breasts
Dried Oregano to taste
Splash of Lemon Juice

Instructions:

Put 1/3 cup olive oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Watch the oil change consistency slightly. Place the chicken breasts in the pan and adjust temperature to keep chicken sizzling.

Pour Oregano into the palm of your hand. Holding your hands above the chicken, rub them together vigorously so that the oregano powder flows from your hands down onto the chicken. This will release the essential oils in the dried Oregano and will result in much more flavor.

Cook chicken, turning only once. Apply liberal oregano to the other side, using the same method.

After the chicken is firm, take out of pan and set aside. Add lemon juice in and stir in rest of the olive oil.

Next add in the heavy cream and butter. Warm until mixed.

Gradually add in parmesan cheese, stirring and making sure to get a nice smooth consistency. Add more cheese as necessary to get a nice thick sauce. Add more oregano, if desired.

You can also add Basil as well.

Tastes well when served with Broccoli or Cauliflower.
