Roasted Chicken with Garlic-Onion Jelly

This is a quick and easy roasted chicken recipe that is one of my favorites. It's easy enough for a weeknight meal, but flavorful enough for company. Two main ingredients-come on, it doesn't get any easier than this! 


Roasted Garlic & Onion Jelly (I get it from WholeFoods)
8 pieces of chicken thighs


I place the chicken thighs in a roasting pan with the grate so that it doesn't cook in the fat, but you can later use the drippings for the gravy.

Lightly salt and pepper the tops of the chicken thighs then spread 1 teaspoon of the jelly on each of the chicken thighs.

Bake in the oven at 350* for about 1 hour and 15 minutes or until golden and cooked all of the way through.

After the chicken has cooked cover with foil and allow it to rest while you make the gravy. Use a gravy separator to separate the fat from the chicken juices. Then use a small mesh strainer to filter the bits from the gravy. 

Add a cornstarch slurry (1 Tbsp of water to 1 teaspoon of corn starch) to gravy to help it thicken. Cook on medium-low heat until reduced to desired thickness. You will need to season the gravy with a little salt as well to taste.

I serve this with the parsley and cheese rice.
