This Easy Turkey Gravy Recipe is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table! This savory sauce is delicious on white meat, dark meat, and all over your mashed potatoes!


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup turkey drippings
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth


Pour the pan drippings from your turkey into a fat separator cup (or a large measuring cup). Let sit while you start the gravy.

In a medium saucepan or skillet, melt butter. Add flour and pepper and whisk to combine. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

Pour the turkey drippings into the saucepan, being sure not to add the fat. (If using a measuring cup, skim off the fat before adding the drippings.) Whisk to combine. 

Add the chicken stock and whisk to combine. Bring the gravy to a simmer, whisking occasionally. 

Once the gravy has thickened, remove from heat and transfer to a gravy boat for serving.


Recipe Notes

You need 2 cups total of liquid for this recipe. If there isn't a full cup of turkey drippings from your bird, replace the difference with more chicken broth.
