This is a recipe I created out of necessity for a low fat homemade alternative Gravy. Little did I realize at the time, this recipe is actually even lower in calories than those dry packets of gravy you can get at the grocery store (16 calories per 1/4 cup serving). The only drawback is the sodium is alittle high (654 mg per serving).
A Great thing about this recipe, is that you can prepare the dry ingredients and pre-package them for future use. You can also adjust the flavor by just changing the bouillon; beef, tomato, vegetable, etc... You name it.
ENJOY !! :-D

  • 2 Tbsp
    corn starch (a.k.a. corn flour)
  • 2 Tbsp
    chicken bouillon powder

How to Make Naenae's Fat Free Chicken Gravy

Step-by-Step

  1. In a 1 quart saucepan, pour in the cold water. Add remaining ingredients and whisk.
  2. Place pan on the stove, on medium heat, and constantly stir until gravy comes to a boil. Continue to boil for 1 minute, remove from heat and serve.
  3. Makes 2 cups (8 "1/4 cup" servings)

    This is great on rice, potatoes, stuffing or anything you like gravy on.
  4. * NOTE: Make sure the water is cold when you start. If you add dry corn starch to warm liquids, you end up with big clumps of goo and not a smooth gravy. At this point it can't be saved, dump it out and start over.
