Ingredients

12 servings
  • 1 Turkey (7 kg) (15.4 lbs)
  • 1 orange
  • 1 green lemon
  • 1 onion
  • 6 branches of rosemary
  • 6 branches of sage
  • 6 branches of oregano
  • 7 spoonfuls of unsalted butter
  • 2 spoonfuls of herb of Provence
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of Salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of black pepper
  • 6 cups of chicken soup
  • 1/3 of Cup of flour

    Preparation

    Preheat the oven to 400ºF or 200º centigrade.
    Clean the turkey and rinse with water. Dry with paper towels.
    Cut the oranges, lemons and onion and place inside the turkey. Add 2 sprigs of each type of herbs (rosemary, sage and oregano).
    Tie the legs of the turnkey with the help of the cooking twine.
    In a saucepan, mix 2 tablespoons of butter, the herbs of Provence, oil, 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 1/2 teaspoon of pepper until the butter melts. Stir well.
    Place the turkey on a turkey baking tray and spread the melted butter over the turkey. If you can, try inserting the butter between the skin and the flesh of the turkey with your hands.
    Cover the turkey with aluminum foil and roast for 20 minutes.
    Add 3 cups of chicken broth to the turkey tray and the rest of the fresh herbs. Roast the turkey another 40 minutes.
    Reduce the oven temperature to 350 F or 180 C and remove the aluminum foil from the turkey. Add 1 cup of chicken breast to the tray.
    Continue to roast the turkey about 1 hour and a half. Baste the turkey with its juices every 15-20 minutes. (The turkey is ready when a thermometer in the thickest part of the leg registers 165F or 70 centigrade).
    Remove the turkey from the oven and cover with aluminum foil while the gray is prepared.
    To make the gravy, pass all the juices that remain in the turkey tray through a colander (you can throw the solids).
    After a few minutes, when the fat separates from the turkey, remove the fat from the top of the turkey juices with a spoon.
    Add enough chicken broth until you have a total of 4 cups of broth (including turkey juices).
    In a saucepan, melt 5 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the flour and stir with a balloon whisk without stopping for 1 minute. Slowly add the broth and keep stirring until the gravy thickens. Season with salt and pepper.
    Serve the gravy with the turkey and enjoy.

    podría ser aquí que lo de pendiente sean  las ramas de orégano? siguiendo el orden de la preparación, solo que pide 6 ramas de cada una y solo se utilizan 2 de cada una, creo que por eso son seis.
