Turkey or Chicken Gravy
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
This is a simple gravy to make and tastes great using boxed turkey or chicken broth and Worcestershire sauce for flavor. You can add a dash of sage, thyme or poultry seasoning if desired. Or, you can use some of the degreased drippings from the turkey or chicken.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon flour, all purpose
2 cups chicken broth, reduced sodium (or vegetable broth, reduced sodium)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, low sodium, or 1 tablespoon pan drippings
2 teaspoons shallot(s), finely minced
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Place olive oil in a medium sauce pan and heat over medium heat. Add finely minced shallots and cook for about 1 minute until soft. Whisk in flour and cook for about 30 seconds until flour is fully incorporated. Slowly whisk in broth, Dijon and Worcestershire Sauce. Continue to cook for 5 to 10 minutes until gravy is thickened. If necessary add more broth to thin out gravy. To thicken gravy more, mix 1 teaspoon corn starch with 1 teaspoon cold water. Slowly add cornstarch mixture to gravy and heat until thickened. You can also add a dash of sage, rosemary or poultry seasoning if desired.
