Making Gravy


  • Reserved pan liquid plus enough chicken stock to make 4 cups of liquid
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, cut into 4 equal pieces
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

1. Strain the pan liquid through a fine mesh sieve into a large gravy separator and discard the solids. Add enough chicken stock to equal 4 cups of liquid.

2. Place the roasting pan over a stovetop burner set to medium heat. Add the butter and flour. As the butter melts, stir with a wooden spoon and cook until the mixture turns the color of peanut butter, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 4 cups of the reserved pan liquid (but not the fat) and the wine.

3. Bring the gravy to a boil, whisking frequently to dissolve the lumps.

4. Lower the heat and simmer the gravy for a few minutes or until it reaches the consistency you like. If the gravy gets too thick, add more chicken stock a little at a time and simmer until it reaches the right thickness. Turn off the heat. Add the parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
