Herb and Mustard Turkey with Green Onion Gravy

6 Oct

Herb and Mustard Turkey with Green Onion Gravy will have you craving Thanksgiving dinner all year.  The herb butter compliments poultry so well, leaving turkey moist and delicious.

With the anticipation of fall food and Thanksgiving around the corner, I have been craving traditional comfort foods like your favorite bird, gravy, mashed potatoes, and cranberry relish.  In order to satisfy my desires I decided to cook up a mini Thanksgiving feast.  Herb and Mustard Turkey with Green Onion Gravy is the ultimate (and my favorite) recipe that meets this criteria.  To scale it down to size for a dinner for two, I used a whole chicken instead of a turkey.  This helped provide enough leftovers to make an amazing chicken salad and homemade chicken stock.

I wanted to provide you with the turkey recipe, but know that you can reduce the Herb and Mustard Butter and Green onion Gravy to accomodate a chicken for smaller servings.  By rubbing the Herb and Mustard Butter under the skin on the meat, makes the final result extremely moist and infused with flavor.  It may seem complicated, but is actually very simple and well worth the little bit of extra effort.
