One thing we make around here a lot is chicken. We are primarily chicken and beef eaters since I’m allergic to pork and organic/natural turkey is harder to come by.
Chicken Broth Gravy
Back on track…we eat a lot of chicken. My favorite way to cook chicken is in the crockpot. I like to buy whole chickens in bulk from our local Hutterite colony and so it’s easy for me just to stick one straight from the freezer into the crockpot and have a warm meal at the end of the day.
One of our favorite meals out of this chicken in the crockpot is a simple one with mashed potatoes, gravy, and of course..chicken.
Chicken broth gravy is easy enough to make and takes only 3 ingredients. It makes a great addition to the meal to pour over potatoes, chicken, or even a special side of stuffing. Since it takes about 5 minutes (or less!) to make it’s worth your time! Another thing we love about this is that since it’s made from nourishing bone broth it’s very healthy for you!
Chicken Broth Gravy
What You Need:
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 Tablespoon of starch (I use potato starch, corn starch or arrowroot is fine!)
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- salt to taste
In a saucepan, pour in the chicken broth. Turn on a medium heat and let it start to simmer and bubble. Add in the garlic, salt, and onion powder. How much you add will be up to your tastes. For this amount of broth, we usually do about 1/2 teaspoon of each.
In a small bowl, mix a tiny amount of COLD water with your tablespoon of starch until it’s combined.
Add the water/starch mixture into the chicken broth on the stove, stirring with a whisk while you add.
Let the mixture simmer for a few more moments while you stir. The gravy will thicken and set up. Add in salt to taste.
And that’s all there is to making Chicken Broth Gravy! As I mentioned above…use for a topping for all kinds of dishes. Store in the fridge if you have leftovers. The mixture will thicken even more into a gel like substance but all you have to do to make it “normal” again is heat it up, either on the stove or in the microwave. Enjoy!
