Rich Chicken Or Turkey Gravy Recipe @pinch

A fabulous, basic poultry gravy everyone should have in their recipe box. This is how your mother or grandmother would teach you. We made Lynn's homemade stock for testing. It had all the great poultry seasonings (we just simmered it on the stove). We opted to use the butter and flour method to make a roux. This made a thick and creamy gravy. The water and corn starch method would also work well. We love the tip of adding a few drops of Kitchen Bouquet. It makes a dark and rich gravy. Great to serve for a holiday meal, but It is so simple, that you could serve it anytime. This is made from good ole chicken stock and is a very easy, yummy gravy. This can be made with beef stock, as well, to make brown beef gravy.
