Welcome to the best chicken gravy from stock recipe. Okay, I don’t use the “best” word lightly, but when you try it, you will know exactly what I mean. In fact, I’m a little embarrassed to say it’s so good my hubby drank the leftovers…

Anyway, please use your initiative to adjust the water and flour quantities as I’m pretty sure every chicken will produce differing amounts of juices. And, each to their own on how thick you like it. So, play around.

You can also adjust the flavors to mach your mood, i like to add things like lemon juice for a lighter more fragrant dish or even some chipotle for a winter warming dinner.
