This is very easy and is perfect for an upgrade of that simple Store Bought Rotisserie Chicken.

Best of all, if you make the Stock from the bones of a Rotisserie Chicken, almost the entire sauce is made from parts that many toss...

A simple DIY Upgrade that costs almost nothing!!!

And is perfect with Mashed Potatoes!

Keep scrolling down for this easy to follow recipe.

OK... Here's what I did...

Chicken Gravy
from the Goo in the Bottom of a
Rotisserie Chicken

  • 1/4 Cup (all) of the Goo in the bottom of a package of Store Bought Pre-Cooked, Pre-Seasoned Rotisserie Chicken
  • 2 Cups Chicken Stock
  • 2 TBS Butter
  • 2 TBS Flour
  • 1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Several turns of a Pepper Grinder to taste
Cooking Directions
  1. In a medium size saute pan over medium high heat, combine the Goo and the Chicken Stock. Whisk to mix and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer for 15 Minutes, reducing the sauce by 1/3rd.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saute pan over medium low heat. Add Flour a TBS at a time and stir to combine.
  3. VERY IMPORTANT, you are making a Roux to thicken the gravy. A Roux must be gently stirred continuously to prevent the butter from burning. Stir for about 5 minutes until the roux starts to smell nutty.
  4. Mix Roux into Chicken stock/Goo.
  5. Add Worcestershire, Salt and Pepper. Continue to simmer and stir until gravy thickens (another 5 minutes.
  6. Serve HOT over Whipped Potatoes and ENJOY!
Maybe even serve with a Chicken Leg/Thigh Quarter from that Rotisserie Chicken, Spruced up to become a baked Parmesan Chicken upgrade (Tomorrow's Post)!
