Only 5 simple ingredients come together in one pan to make an easy pan gravy in about 10 minutes. A perfect addition to almost any meal.Jump to Recipe
Lately, I have been obsessed with trying out different types of gravy. There are so many ways to make it, and the flavor varies greatly depending on what you use. Today’s recipe is a super easy pan gravy. It takes only 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of time.
This is a lighter gravy with a chicken flavor. It’s perfect over mashed potatoes or served on roasted chicken or turkey. This doesn’t use the bones or meat from chicken, but instead just chicken broth for most of the taste. I’ve done gravies both ways. I used the carcass of a turkey for turkey gravy. I made brown gravy without a bone. Obviously, this is easier but has a very different taste.
Since this is so quick, it’s a great last-minute addition to a meal. Having something like gravy can really round out a delicious meal.
For the holidays, I like to have two options for gravy. Some prefer a darker, more hearty gravy, such as homemade brown gravy. Others may prefer a lighter gravy like this one.
And don’t forget, one pan means you aren’t adding much to your clean-up after the meal, too!
Step by Step
Slowly whisk in chicken broth, salt, and pepper.
Cook, stirring often, until it comes to a boil, about 2-5 minutes. If it’s too thick, add more broth 1/4 cup at a time.
Leftovers can be saved in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or the freezer for 2-3 months. To reheat, pour into a saucepan and heat over medium heat, whisking often, until it has the consistency of gravy again. If it was frozen, let it thaw completely in the refrigerator before reheating.
