Gravy, Making

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Fresh lemon juice and herbs invigorate the flavor of the stuffing in this simple roast chicken. Drizzle the extra stuffing with water before baking to help keep it moist; you can also use chicken broth or white wine for this purpose.

Cooking Flour
Pour 1/4 cup of the reserved fat, skimmed from the drippings, into the roasting pan. Sprinkle the flour over the fat while stirring; cook till bubbly.

Thickening Gravy
Add enough broth or water to the remaining drippings to make 2 cups liquid, then pour into the flour mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
