We love country gravy and this was very good. I used some drippings from the chicken that I baked and they added a nice flavor as well. Thanks for sharing Jenni Girl. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.

Wow, i sure got praise for this one!!! I'm not a gravy person but my DH is a Texan and considers himself an expert. He took one taste and said that it made him instantly crave chicken fried steak which is the true test of a good gravy. I wasn't sure about using just oil, so I did 6 Tbs butter and 2 Tbs oil. Thanks so much Jenni Girl! You sure made DH's night.
