Turn flavorful pan drippings into classic pan gravy. Here¿s how to get started.
Step 1: Pour drippings into a measuring cup
After moving your roasted chicken to a cutting board, pour the pan drippings into a large glass measuring cup. Scrape browned bits from the pan into the cup -- they provide extra flavor.
Step 2: Measure the fat
With a spoon, skim and reserve the fat from the drippings. Pour 1/4 cup of the fat into a 2-quart saucepan (discard any remaining fat).
Step 5: Strain and season gravy
Strain the gravy into a serving dish to get rid of any lumps. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
