All-in-one guide for hosting a Friendsgiving feast: perfectly roasted chicken, garlic parmesan mashed potatoes, maple balsamic roasted veggies, & bourbon pumpkin pie!
Prepare the pie crust dough.
Preheat oven to 500°.
Spatchcock your chicken and roast at 500°. When chicken is done, tent loosely with foil and set the pan aside.
Reduce oven to 350°.
Make maple balsamic glaze, toss veggies in glaze, and roast at 350°.
Cover mashed potatoes and gravy tightly with foil and place in the oven to warm while the veggies roast.
Make bourbon maple whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate.
Remove everything from the oven, then place the uncovered chicken on the top rack. Broil for 5-7 minutes to crisp the skin; keep an eye on it so the herbs don't burn.
Carve the chicken, saving the carcass for broth.
All "The Morning Of" prep work could also be done the day before if that's more convenient.
