Ingredients

  • Pan drippings from Classic Roast Turkey
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine (such as Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • kosher salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Strain the pan drippings into a fat separator or large measuring cup. Let stand for 10 minutes. Skim and discard the fat from the surface.
  2. Place the empty roasting pan over 2 burners over medium-high heat. Add the wine and cook for 2 minutes, stirring and scraping to dissolve any bits stuck to the pan. Remove from heat and pour into the cup with the pan juices.
  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle with the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Still stirring, slowly add the broth, then the reserved pan juices. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.

Quick Tip

Simple Roast Chicken
Free-range birds have a more robust turkey flavor and substantial texture than coop-raised ones. They tend to be moist but not exceptionally so.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
