Game changing incredibly tasty Gluten Free Gravy perfect for any Roast Chicken or Slow Cooker Pot Roast! This gluten free version of gravy is so good, no one ever knows it’s gluten free. It’s perfect for family meals and you’ll find my dairy free options below as well. You’ll find yourself making this classic recipe for everything from Sunday dinners, to your next Thanksgiving feast. It’s also incredibly tasty paired with my Best Mashed Potatoes for the ultimate comfort food.



2 tablespoons butter, ghee, dairy free butter, or olive oil

2 tablespoons gluten free flour, see notes, 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons for a thick gravy

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or garlic granules

2 cups broth and drippings, see notes

1/2 teaspoon sea salt, more or less to taste depending on your broth

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, to taste


Place a small saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter. Then whisk in the flour making sure no lumps remain. Whisk in the garlic powder, and continue to cook for a few seconds until fragrant.

Next add the broth/drippings slowly whisking constantly to incorporate the liquid into the flour mixture. Be sure to whisk really well so no lumps form.

Bring the mixture to a boil, then season to taste with sea salt and pepper.

Serve with your favorite roast chicken or pot roast dinner.


The best options for gluten free flour in order are: sweet white rice flour, Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 (blue bag), or Cup4Cup (not dairy free).

Use beef broth for pot roasts, or chicken broth for roasted chicken. You can use the leftover liquid from cooking a roast or any pan drippings combined with broth to make up the 2 cups.

For a touch more flavor, try adding a large pinch of poultry seasoning. It’s a blend that has sage and thyme in it, and is especially well suited to gravy.
