White Gravy

 am not a Southerner (boo-hoo) but my Daddy was from Missouri and he made white gravy. I LOVE it with chicken. I'm adding just a little over the mashed potatoes and chicken... heaven!

I make it without a recipe so I'll try to approximate the amounts:

2-3 TBS butter

2-3 TBS flour

1 1/2 cups milk

salt and pepper


Using the pan the chicken was cooked in, heat butter over medium heat and scrape up any brown bits in the pan . Add flour and incorporate. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring until just slightly brown. Whisk in milk. Cook, stirring until thick. Season with salt and a good dose of pepper.
