Recipe: Quick Chicken Gravy

Mmmm!  What’s for dinner?  If it’s a hectic day here, chances are it’s a rotisserie chicken with some veggies.  In order to give a homemade touch to this very convenient meal, I experimented with creating my own gravy to compliment the chicken.  YUM!  I was ready to sop it up with a biscuit (which would be a nice side with this dish).

All measurements are approximate, as I do not measure.

  • 1 Tbsp. Organic Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base (LOVE this product!)
  • 4 oz water
  • 6 oz milk
  • 3-4 Tbsp. cornstarch or white flour
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Fresh or dried parsley


Over medium heat, place liquids and base into saucepan.  Stir until dissolved.  Slowly add cornstarch or flour, adding only a little at one time and whisking in quickly, getting rid of any lumps.  Continue to add until thickened to desired constistency.  Remove pan from heat and add pepper and parsley to your liking.  Remember, if you add too much thickener and need to thin, use milk and add a little more chicken base.

    I needed a quick easy GF gravy to jazz up some otherwise plain chicken breasts I was serving my family tonight, and oh boy did they love this! Even my picky sons were shoveling chicken and gravy into their faces! Thanks for sharing such a simple recipe with ingredients I always have in my house! 🙂

    This gravy was so thick I had to add more water and an entire can of chicken broth. Only added 3 tbsp flour. Not nearly as good as my other chicken gravy recipes.
