DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in sauce pan until bubbly; add flour and stir well. The roux will be thick.
  • Add drippings if you have any (not needed, but makes the flavour deeper).
  • Add chicken broth 1/4 cup at a time and stir well in between addings. Before adding the last 1/2 cup make sure that the gravy comes up to a slight boil as it will get thicker and thicker. Add the last chicken broth.
  • You may find that you need to add more/less chicken broth - it will depend on how thick you want your gravy.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste - remember to add enough salt to get the full flavour of the gravy out. The 3/4 tsp is what our family likes.
