If you know me, you know that I love sauces. I love to dip my food or drizzle a sauce over meats or veggies for a tasty finish. Well, here is a super simple, super fast, garlic chicken gravy recipe. USEFUL TIP: Instead of Chicken Bouillon from Better Than Bouillon, you can substitute for their vegetable, lobster, beef or even mushroom base. (No, Better Than Bouillon is not paying me.) 😉What you will need:Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base(For this recipe, i like to use this base. It’s organic, gluten free, no MSG. Costco brought this item back!).Johnny’s Garlic Spread & Seasoning(Costco just started carrying this. I’m using it for all kinds of recipes from salad dressings, omelets and add to sour cream for a delectable dip.)Butter, Water, Ground Pepper & Cornstarch.In a small sauce pan on medium high heat add:
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp cornstarch
Stir cornstarch and butter until they combine. Quickly add a 1/4 cup of water and never stop whisking. Next add:
2 tbsp of Better Than Bouillon Chicken base
1 tbsp of Johnny’s Garlic Spread
1 tsp of ground pepper
Continue whisking. Add another 1/4 cup of water and continue to slowly add another 1/4 cup of water as you whisk. At this point your gravy should be bubbling slightly. Watch the consistency as you whisk. If it’s too thick, add more water. Turn off the heat and continue whisking for a few more seconds to ensure your gravy does not stick. You should end up with approximately 3/4 cups of gravy in about 6-8 minutes. Pour it over some chicken, mashed potatoes or even mushrooms and in minutes you’ve escalated your dinner to the next level.
USEFUL TIP: You can always add water but you can’t take it away. Add water slowly to ensure you get the right consistency.
Remember, this recipe is super fast and super simple. You can always use homemade chicken stock and roasted garlic but that will take hours to make. Enjoy!
