Easy Chicken Gravy


Have you ever purchased a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, brought it home and as an after thought wish you had some gravy to go with it? Well this is a simple, quick gravy recipe that tastes great. When the store packages the chickens they go into a plastic container right off the grill rod and are covered with a plastic lid. As the chicken sets the juices and moisture from the chicken settle to the bottom. This time, don't toss the juice out.
The spices are a matter of taste; in other words use a little at a time until you find the right balance of flavor. I used pinches until I found the flavor I wanted.
  • rotisserie chicken juices
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • dried sage
  • poultry seasoning
  • onion powder
  • granulated garlic
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1/8 tsp. gravy master (or less for flavor and color)
  1. In a sauce pot add in the chicken broth and chicken juices and some gravy master. Bring up to a bubble over medium high heat.
  2. Add in the spices and taste to see if you need more.
  3. Then finally make a slurry with the cornstarch and water.
  4. When the mixture comes to a boil over medium high heat, slowly whisk in the slurry until you get the desired consistency you want.
  5. If you want the gravy a lighter color you can add a little bit of half and half or cream.
