Health & Nutrition Notes for Chicken Gravy

The most negative thing about commercially prepared gravies is that they are mined with sodium content. Just look at our nutrition fact chart below and you'll see that one cup holds over 1000 milligrams.

Frankly, we'd rather add our own preferred amount of salt to our food - so it would be a step up if manufacturers stopped adding a plethora to their foods.

Homemade Chicken Gravy Recipe

To prepare chicken gravy at home - a healthier choice over commercially prepared, use the broth from your roasting pan after the bird is fully done. Add sauteed finely chopped onion and celery to the pot if you wish.

Thicken the broth with a mix of cornstarch and water - or flour and water. The amount of thickener used will depend upon how thin or thick you want the gravy to be. Add salt and cracked black pepper.
