  1. Check 1cup hard cider or dry white wine
  2. Check 2 to 3cups low-sodium chicken broth
  3. Check 4tablespoons unsalted butter
  4. Check 1/3cup all-purpose flour
  5. Check kosher salt and black pepper


  1. Strain the drippings into a large measuring cup or bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes, then skim off and discard the fat. (Alternatively, use a fat separator.)
  2. Place the empty pan over 2 burners over medium-high heat. Add the cider and cook for 1 minute, scraping up the bits stuck to the pan. Pour into the skimmed drippings and add enough broth to make a total of 4 cups.
  3. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook the flour, whisking, until golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Whisk in the broth mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Strain.
