This clean eating chicken gravy recipe is easy to make with the drippings from a slow cooker rotisserie-style chicken!
Gravy is one of life’s greatest enjoyments in my humble opinion. All that saucy goodness is enough to put a smile on almost anybody’s face. Don’t you think? I know it does the trick for me!
It did the trick for Mini Chef too. I’m trying to get him used to eating Brussels sprouts. I tried everything short of standing on my head, and he would not budge. That is, until I poured this gravy over the top. Those Brussels sprouts were gone in under a minutes. Yes, I timed it.
WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH LEFTOVER GRAVY?
While I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve ever in my life seen leftover gravy (we love our gravy around here!), if you do happen to have some, there are some creative ways to use it up.
- Turn it into stew by adding a little extra broth and whatever else you want in your stew.
- Use it like pasta sauce.
- Freeze it for later use.
- Use it in a casserole.
HOW DO YOU THICKEN GRAVY WITHOUT FLOUR LUMPS?
If you opt to use regular, whole grain flour instead of coconut flour, you can avoid lumps by adding the flour in, a little at a time. Whisk constantly while the gravy simmers. Add about a teaspoon at a time and then whisk like crazy. The key is adding the flour in very small amounts until your gravy is thick.
HOW CAN I THICKEN GRAVY WITHOUT FLOUR?
If this coconut flour just isn’t your thing, you can also avoid using regular flour by using arrowroot powder or cornstarch. You will need to make a slurry first, but it works quite well.

CLEAN EATING CHICKEN GRAVY RECIPE:
A delicious, homemade gravy you can pour over almost anything!
- 1 cup chicken drippings from a whole, slow cooker chicken (see link above)
- 2 tbsp. coconut flour (or less, as needed)
- 5 tbsp. coconut milk
In a skillet, combine the drippings (for me it was actually at least a cup worth of liquid) and the coconut milk.
Whisk in the flour as needed. Note that the flour will leave a slight added texture to the gravy. Though it's nothing that is off-putting, you should use the smallest amount you can get away with.
