Rehersal Dinner for 50 w Queview - Page 2

post #21 of 31
Done that gig a time or two. Mostly to get some exposure and to help out some friends when the budget got tight.

Those are neat little ramies. Yes, I would like the link.

Some times the easiest is the most impressive.

Great job, Scarbelly!! PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

 I've never heard of Chicken Au Jous before.  How do you make it and what's it like?  I have an uncle that has gout that is triggered by beef au jous for french dips and prime rib.  I wonder if the chicken au jous would be different.  It all looks great good job.

We take chicken thighs and legs and roast  in the oven with the usual veggies like carrots and celery and onions on a sheet pan. Then we take the chicken and strip the bones out and put them back on the pan and roast for another 30 -45 minutes. Then we take the bones, chicken and fresh veggies and some water in a pan and cook for at least an hour to bring out the flavor. We then strain this and cook reducing it by 30 - 40 % until you have a great tasting au jus.

 

That is how we do it. Bob Bally or Chef Rob may have a better less intensive labor method that works well - this is just our recipe

sounds like what i did the other day..........but with a whole bird. i did not have time to strip the bird but i used the juices from the cavity and i did use a roasting rack so the veggies got some color on them. with the bird resting on a plate i added about a cup or so of water right to the roasting pan with the veggies and brought it to a boil while scraping the browned bits (fond) off the bottom to darken (and flavor) the jus. you can season it and use it as is, or do what i did, and reduced it by 1/2 - 2/3rds and then used it to top the bird and garlic mashed potatoes.

I don't know....I think that I would have or at least suggested two rehearsals just to "make sure" everything went exactly as planned. icon_wink.gif That all looks so delicious and very nicely done. Great job!
