Making chicken gravy isn't a mystery, I will show you how to make chicken gravy. One of the great benefits in baking a chicken is having pan drippings to make a fabulous gravy with. It isn't hard to make gravy, I will show you how to make chicken gravy.


Pan drippings from baked chicken 3 Tablespoon
Flour 3 Tablespoon
Chicken broth 16 Ounce



1. In a skillet, heat pan drippings over a medium high heat.

2. Add three tablespoons of flour to the pan drippings and whisk together with a whisk. Cook this "roux" for a minute or two. By cooking this "roux" you will remove any raw taste of the flour, and this is a critical step, so make sure you have cooked this for a full minute before adding the liquid.

3. Add one-third of the liquid, and whisk together, this mixture will turn very thick after a moment or two.

4. Add the next third of the liquid, and stir making sure all lumps are removed, once this mixture has thickened fully you can add in the remaining liquid.


5. Serve on the side with baked chicken.


If your gravy is too thick to your personal liking you could add some additional liquid, or even finish with a tablespoon or two of heavy cream if you desire.
