Chicken Gravy

Chicken Gravy

A recipe with 48% less sodium than its traditional counterpart.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 cup low-fat Greek-style yogurt

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the flour and cook, whisking, until a light straw color.
  2. Add the stock all at once and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  3. Remove from the heat, add the yogurt, and whisk until smooth. Season to taste with salt and white pepper. Serve immediately. This gravy pairs nicely with Walnut-Coated Smart "Fried" Chicken.
