This is so easy! From a chicken pot pie recipe that I really like. This is ready in under 10 minutes and doesn't use pan drippings.

What a lifesaver! I used whole wheat flour and it was delicious, quick and easy. Next time I'll use less salt.

I was quite uncertain about this recipe as I had used a simliar with horrible results. But, having 2 cups left of chicken broth with no other use for it, I decided to try this one. Great recipe! The gravy was flavorful and was delicious on mashed potatoes. However, is there anyway I can make it a bit thicker?

This came out MUCH better than expected. Re: thickening, I let it simmer for 5 minutes on medium heat once it all came together. Husband unit loved it. I added herbs de provence and a smidge of sage, left out the salt. Wow! Great accompaniment to grilled chicken with rice.

I found this gravy to be quick and delicious. Served over leftover mashed potatoes it drew rave reviews from three, sometimes picky boys.

I have made LOTS of gravy in my time and this is by far the easiest, tastiest, no-lump gravy ever! It's excellent and simple to make. You can use pan drippings (or crockpot meat juice) and chicken fat if you'd like. It works very well.


rainbowcarrie reviewed Easy Chicken Gravy on January 3, 2009

Wow! This was so extremely easy and very delicious! And I like easy recipes since I am no gourmet chef. I roasted a chicken yesterday and used the leftover shredded chicken mixed into the gravy. I then served over rice (made easily in my rice cooker). I made the chicken broth with bullion cubes + water.

I am definetly going to use this over and over again. Great taste and super easy.

This was very easy to make. I replaced the chicken broth for Vegetable broth and added maybe a quarter tsp of paprika. didn't really measure it so I'm guessing. then a spooned it over chicken and stuffing.

Quick, easy, and tastes how you want it to taste! :) I prefer making gravy using pan drippings, but in a pinch this all you need.

Tasted great and was very easy to make, I did add a little sage to the recipe for extra flavor.

What's in season?
