I like to make this meal for my husband because it is pure man food, meat and potatoes! The gravy made from chicken broth is so flavorful and loaded with tender bits of chicken.

This is one of those meals that after a hard day you feel like your belly is being wrapped in warm blanket. You will be so amazed at how quickly you can make this dinner and how much your family will love it!

This chicken gravy recipe is a great way to use up leftover turkey, chicken or even with a rotisserie chicken.

How to make Chicken Gravy with Chicken Broth

If you haven’t ever made homemade chicken gravy with chicken broth, don’t be intimidated, this recipe really couldn’t be any easier!

To make this recipe start with a big pan, this will make about 4 cups of gravy. I love cooking in my enameled cast iron pan because it distributes the heat so evenly. 

Melt the butter in the pan and add in the sprigs of thyme. Just stir the thyme around in the melted butter and allow it took cook until it becomes fragrant.

This is just to infuse the butter with the flavor of the thyme. After a minute, remove the thyme sprigs from the butter and discard. It is okay if a few thyme leaves are left in the butter.

Stir the flour into the butter and stir until it is combined with the butter, it will be thick almost like dough.

Whisk in the chicken broth and stir until there are no more lumps and the gravy is smooth. Bring the gravy to a simmer and stir until the gravy thickens. 

Season with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce. Add in the shredded chicken and stir until it is heated through. Serve this deliciousness over warm mashed potatoes.

  1. Added onion powder, parsley, garlic powder , and all your ingredients with veggies, and added it over rice 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    This recipe was very good. I used roasted chicken breasts with the potatoes and gravy as a side for presentation bit we were all eating it together anyway. The trick with the thyme in the butter, then removing added flavor was great and I will be using it again in other recipes.

    1. I’m so happy you enjoyed it!! Thanks so much for taking the time to come back and leave a comment and review, I really appreciate it!

  3. Can We put 1/2 to 1 tsp of dried thyme into the butter instead of the 1-2 sprigs it calls for? I know it says to remove the tyme sprigs and if I use the dried time I won’t be able to take it out of the mixture… Thanks for your time….
