As the liquid heats up and begins to simmer, the gravy thickens. After a minute of simmering, you have gravy! Step 3: Season with salt and pepper and optional ingredients. Before serving the gravy, taste it. Step 4: Add a splash of half-and-half or cream. This is optional, but it does make the gravy extra creamy and decadent. In the photo below, we show the dish used when following our whole roasted chicken recipe. The chicken roasts on a bed of onions, which makes the chicken and the pan drippings ultra-flavorful.
First, I separate the fat and broth left in the bottom of the roasting pan. Then I strain the remaining liquid. The fat I saved can be used in place of the butter called for in the recipe and the liquid I saved can be used as the broth. If you used a roasting pan or Dutch oven that is safe to place over the stovetop, you can make the gravy right in it.
If you used a baking dish like we did for our chicken, you will need to make the gravy in a skillet. Butter can be substituted with other animal fats like chicken fat or lard. You can also use fat separated from pan drippings.

Substitute some or all the butter with fat left in the pan from roasting.
If there are juices left in the pan, strain them then swap all or some of the stock for the pan juices. Pan drippings and juices will be well seasoned compared to the stock. If you used a stove-top safe pan such as a Dutch oven or stainless steel pan for roasting, there is no need for the skillet. Make the gravy directly in the roasting pan.
Make ahead: Cool the gravy then store in an airtight dish. Refrigerate up to 5 days.
