Units Scale

  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp. of rotisserie chicken seasoning


  • in a nonstick skillet, iron skillet, or saucepan, over medium heat melt the butter

  • continue to whisk until the bouillon is dissolved and the gravy has thickened
  • if necessary, strain lumps from the gravy



Can you make gravy ahead of time?

Yes! You can make this gravy a few days in advance. Simply warm it up on your stovetop with the lid on your saucepan over low to medium heat

Can you Freeze Gravy?

Yes! Gravy should be completely cooled down before freezing. Freeze it in ice cube trays, freezer bags, or containers. You can freeze gravy for a few months

What Can I Use this Gravy For?

  • Serve over mashed potatoes
  • Use as a gravy for turkey roll-ups 
  • A great sauce for an open-faced turkey sandwich
  • A gravy for fried chicken
  • Serve over meatloaf
  • A great sauce for egg noodles and cooked chicken breast

What Can I Add to Bland Chicken or Turkey Gravy for Flavor?

My go-to seasoning for a bland gravy is a bouillon cube. You can also add salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and mustard powder for extra seasoning

Tips and Tricks

  • a roux is made from equal amounts of melted butter and flour mixed together
  • if you get lumps in your gravy, which happens quite often, use a strainer to strain them out of the gravy for a smooth and delicious gravy
