This Simple Chicken Gravy can be made with or without chicken drippings and brings incredible flavor to any dish!
A while back, I shared that I had found an amazing sale on whole chickens at my local grocery store. Since I decided to make the chicken in my slow cooker for dinner one night, I decided to use my favorite chicken gravy recipe to go with it.

Not only is this gravy so simple to make, but it is packed with flavor and most of the ingredients are ones you may already have on hand. In fact, gravy can be such a great way to add a boost of flavor to any meal! I like to put it on my chicken/turkey, and then add a scoop to my mashed potatoes and sometimes even veggies!
I typically buy organic chicken broth to make things easy, however, I am going to be making my own soon, so stay tuned for that recipe to make this even healthier!!
Skip buying the packaged gravy mixes that are loaded with ingredients no one has even heard of! This Simple Chicken Gravy is much more flavorful and better for you!
If you’re wanting to make this gravy at Thanksgiving, you can use the turkey drippings in place of the chicken broth (or stick to broth and it’ll still be great)!
You can even kick this up a few notches and add in some seasonings of your choosing! Perhaps Italian seasoning? Garlic? Red Pepper Flakes to add a bit of heat? Whatever you prefer, have fun with it and enjoy!
