Packed with garlic powder, melted butter, and freshly ground black pepper, this dish is sure to send your taste buds soaring. It’s so easy to make! Begin by melting the butter in a Dutch over medium heat, and slowly whisk in the flour. Cook the mixture for 3 to 4 minutes while stirring constantly. Next, gradually add in 4 cups of the chicken stock, and increase the heat to high. After the mixture reaches a boil, stir in the sage, kosher salt, garlic powder, and dried thyme. Lastly, let the mixture simmer for about 15 minutes or until it has reached your desired thickness. Cover and chill the gravy for up to 3 days, and serve it up when the time is right!
