Ame, for the Flax recommendation. We got another pasture raised, free range, organic chicken from Double Check last week at the Farmer's market. After roasting the chicken, there was a good bit of natural juice leftover - just as there was at Thanksgiving.
COSTCO here now sells Organic Golden Flax from Flax USA. Inside the re-sealable bag is a handy little scoop. Three of these scoops, and viola, the thin chicken juice was beautifully thickened. Gluten free, natural fiber, loads of healthy omega 3s, lower carb - Much lower carb than using corn starch, which used to be the "go to" way to thicken gravy chez nous. And tasty too!
I would have never thought of using flax to thicken gravy had Ame not recommended it. Thanks again!
