The gravy used to be made fresh with the cracklings. Now it comes in a pouch and all you have to do is add water. Thank God for modified starch products.

  2. Cook this over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until the roux browns in color to resemble a nice milk chocolate color.
  3. Once the mixture turns brown remove it from the heat and add the remaining flour stirring to make a paste. Slowly add the liquid (s) whisking together the paste and liquid.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil and boil for 2 minutes reduce the heat and allow the mixture to thicken which should take about 3 to 5 minutes. Stirring constantly. Mixture will burn if left unattended.
  5. *That is just the flour that you use to bread the chicken with.
