  • 4 tablespoons ghee, coconut oil or grass-fed butter
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca starch or arrowroot powder
  • 2 1/2 cups hot chicken stock or strained turkey drippings
  • ½ teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Heat a medium saucepan over medium-low heat then add your chosen fat to melt. Sprinkle the tapioca starch over the top and whisk well until smooth and no clumps remain. Cook for 1 minute, whisking constantly until the mixture is golden and bubbling.
  • Continue to whisk and slowly pour in the warm stock at the same time. The mixture will be a bit clumpy but keep whisking until it smoothes out.
  • Allow to cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until thickened, continuing to whisk frequently. Whisk in the poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Taste test and adjust seasoning as needed.
  • Store in a large mason jar if you make it a day or two in advance.


If you have leftover turkey drippings from Thanksgiving, strain the drippings to remove any fat then measure them out and substitute with some or all of the chicken broth if desired.
