Don't stress about cooking your Thanksgiving turkey this year. Give yourself a trial run by cooking a chicken before the big day. It will help you work out all the kinks and help to calm your nerves. Since I'm going to be cooking my turkey on my Big Green Egg on Thursday I decided to give it a dry run with a chicken.
Let chicken rest.
Letting the chicken rest seems like a simple step and it's easy to skip it but don't underestimate it's importance. Letting the chicken rest allows the juices to reabsorb into the meat instead of spilling out onto the platter once it's sliced.
My mock Thanksgiving meal included chicken, broccoli and a salad.
I feel better about my Thanksgiving turkey now that I practiced by roasting a chicken on my Big Green Egg. Want to try a new turkey recipe this year? Practice on a chicken this weekend - you'll be glad you did.
