Sometimes simplest is best, and that just might be the case here, as flour and water combine with pan drippings from roast chicken to make a basic gravy.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup water, or as needed
- 1 (3 pound) roasted chicken (drippings from chicken)
Add water to the chicken drippings to make about 1 1/2 cups of liquid in the bottom of the roaster.
Whisk water into the flour until it is thick, but not pasty. Whisk the flour/water mixture into the drippings, and put the roaster on the stove over medium heat. Stir constantly until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Add salt and pepper to taste.
