We created this ready-in-ten gravy to jazz up purchased deli-roasted chicken. Add steamed veggies and mashed potatoes, and you have dinner!


  • 1 finely chopped shallot
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh tarragon, chives, and/or thyme


  1. In a small saucepan, cook chopped shallot in hot butter, over medium-low heat, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Stir in flour. Add chicken broth, then cook and stir until just boiling. Cook and stir 1 minute more.
  3. Stir in lemon zest and tarragon.
