Use this easy chicken gravy recipe (no drippings required) to add rich, creamy flavor.
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (10 1/2-ounce) can chicken broth, undiluted
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons dried minced onion
1/8 teaspoon pepper
How to Make It
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk in flour, and cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Whisk in broth and remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 2 minutes or until mixture thickens.
Note: To serve gravy over chicken, sprinkle 4 skinned and boned chicken breast halves with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken, and cook 6 to 7 minutes on each side or until done. Serve with gravy.
I bought a Rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and wanted a gravy recipe that didn't require pan juices. I followed this recipe exactly, and it was delicious. However, it did take longer than 2 minutes to thicken.
