I use Tone's Chicken Gravy and Brown Gravy mixes, and I like both of them. You might want to try some Swanson's low sodium canned broth for the liquid. I have used the canned broth and it gives you the flavor without all the salt and fat.

I would use broth and drippings rather than water.

Sorry I can't be of any help, I've never used gravy mix but I would be interested in learning if the broth works.

I usually make it from scratch like you do, but I'm sure it would work. Also if you have some wine around and also add some sauteed onions, and some fresh or dried thyme. That would provided additional flavor to the gravy

Broth or drippings might be worth trying. I never use it, so I'm not really sure. One thing I can tell you, though, is that it probably won't need any added salt.

I just recently moved in with my boyfriend and I'm making an oven roasted chicken this week. Now I've always made homemade gravy, but when I moved in my boyfriend had a GIANT container of the powdered chicken gravy mix. I don't really care for the taste of it but I want to use it up so it doesn't go to waste. Is there any ideas on how to make it taste better? The directions say to just use water with the mix, I was thinking of mixing chicken broth in, or the drippings in instead of the water does anyone know if this will work?

(yes I know, gravy isn't the healthiest thing, but I believe in all things in moderation)
