How to Make Homemade Chicken Gravy

Making chicken gravy from scratch is easier than you think. In this video, Chef John shows you how to make a creamy homemade chicken gravy. First, you’ll make a simple roux using melted butter and flour. You’ll learn the signals that tell you when your roux is toasted just right and all the flour taste has been cooked out. What you’re shooting for here is a blond roux. Then see a terrific way to gradually add stock as you stir, with no fear of lumps! You’ll see the consistency you’re shooting for, and you’ll also get ideas for variations on this basic creamy chicken gravy. It’s perfect spooned over mashed potatoes, fried chicken, pork chops, and chicken fried steak. Get Chef John’s recipe for Homemade Chicken Gravy.

Your roux turns brown after a minute because your heat is too high. Turn to medium low. High heat burns the flour.
