How to Make Chicken Gravy Mix
by

My kids love homemade chicken gravy and mashed potatoes. To make the gravy I have bought many, many packets of chicken gravy mix. If you want to make your own easy chicken gravy mix, here is the recipe. It's less expensive, and a lot more healthy!

chicken gravy mixTo make this chicken gravy mix, you will need:

Chicken Gravy Mix

  • 1 1/3 c. nonfat dry milk
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 3 tbsp. chicken boullion granules
  • 1/2 tsp. ground sage
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. ground thyme

Note: When you are shopping for chicken boullion, make sure to check your labels. By making your own mix, one of the things you are trying to get away from is the MSG that is added to gravy packets. If you look at the jars of chicken boullion, you will find that many of those also contain MSG. I was able to find a natural boullion that did not contain MSG and it didn't cost very much more.

Mix all ingredients together and store in a quart sized canning jar or other airtight container.

To make the gravy, melt 2 tbsp. butter or margarine in a small sauce pan. Add 1/2 c. mix with 1 cup milk or water. If you stir it in really well with a whisk you won't get any lumps in your gravy. Bring to a boil and then turn heat down and simmer until gravy thickens. Add more liquid for a thinner gravy.

We tried this gravy out the other night and it is delicious! I thought it was MUCH better than the store bought gravy mix. It definitely passed the kid test.

Makes 4 batches of gravy.
