    I made this gravy as written, except used the chicken drippings from Best-Ever Fried Chicken (also a TOH recipe). It was delicious!

    Instead of Thyme and Sage, I used the Herbs De Provence I'm using on the Turkey and it came out great.

    I always add my Sage andamp; Thyme to my stuffing/dressing, so this would be too much. Otherwise, a good basic gravy!

    I don't usually like gravy, but I made this one for Thanksgiving and it was great!
