Giblet Gravy Recipe

Giblets are loaded with nutrition and are fantastic for making giblet broth and, you guessed it, gravy. They add a complex, tasty chicken or turkey flavor naturally.


  • ½ cup boiled chicken (or turkey) giblets, minced
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot starch
  • ¼ cup chicken or turkey drippings or grass-fed butter
  • 3 cups chicken bone broth
  • ½ shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup celery, chopped
  • ¼ cup carrots, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon sage, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large saucepan, over medium heat, combine giblets, arrowroot, chicken drippings, shallot, garlic, celery, carrots, cayenne, sage and salt.
  2. Sauté until roux becomes slightly thick, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add in bone broth and allow to simmer on medium-low for about 8–10 minutes or until the gravy reaches the consistency you like.


I love pouring this over dry brined turkey flavored with my favorite poultry seasonings, rosemary and thyme, with gluten-free cornbread stuffing.
