This quick, easy gravy delivers rich flavor without any need for pan drippings. Shallots and thyme create a savory backbone, and the technique of briefly cooking the flour (before adding the stock) adds a slight toasty note. A little butter whisked in at the end enriches both the taste and the texture. Serve over roast chicken or pork, or use to perk up leftover turkey or a store-bought rotisserie chicken.

How to Make It

Heat 2 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high. Add chopped shallots and fresh thyme; sauté 3 minutes. Stir in all-purpose flour; cook 1 minute. Gradually stir in unsalted chicken stock, black pepper, and kosher salt; cook 4 minutes or until thickened, whisking often. Remove from heat; add unsalted butter, whisking until butter melts.
