  1. Add water to the chicken drippings to make about 1 1/2 cups of liquid in the bottom of the roaster.
  2. 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.

I just estimated the amounts to about what was suggested, and i used chicken stock instead of water. Yum yum yum!

I thought the flavor was good, but the amt of flour was too much. I'd probably cut it down to 1/4 cup or so. It was too thick.

This is EXCELLENT gravy, and the more seasoning that you had on your chicken, the better the gravy is. I had roasted my chicken with "Bag 'N Season", and it made the best drippings and gravy. It was so easy, I couldn't believe it.

Looks like great minds DO think alike! This is exactly how I make my gravy! The best part is that it works with any baked/roasted meat/poultry. As long as you can catch the drippings, you can make an awesome gravy.

Too much flour, try 1/4 c. But still delicious.

Used half the flour and add 1/2 tsp Kitchen Bouquet OR Gravy Master to make this gravy perfect.

I have made this three times now and we just love it. Depending on the seasoning of my chicken, I may or may not add a little organic boullion to the mix to spice it up a bit. I only use 1/3 of the cup of flour as the 1/2 cup seems to floury to us. Thanks!!! I had never made gravy before and this made it easy :)
