If you’re making a roast dinner then you simply have to make my gluten free dairy free gravy recipe – it’s so much better than granules!

Made using the drippings from a roast chicken or turkey, this gluten free gravy recipe is perfect for Christmas dinners or a Sunday roast.

It only uses a few simple ingredients and it’s also completely dairy free.

I love making gravy this way, not only because it’s how my Mum makes it, but also because it’s so simple just before serving a roast.

You don’t have to make the gravy using completely separate ingredients – in fact, you’re using all the drippings which would usually just get discarded.

It just makes the best flavoured chicken or turkey gravy and it freezes well too – so if you don’t use it all you can save some for a future meal.

Half the prep is done in the actual roasting of the meat – you don’t have to add the vegetables but I find it makes a much better gravy flavour.

To be honest all you really need is the meat drippings from the pan, gluten free flour and chicken stock.

You could add a splash of wine or port if you want to make it extra fancy but this basic gluten free dairy free gravy is all you need.

There’s a full printable recipe card down below but for the shopping list you’ll need:

For the roasting tin

  • Meat of choice (chicken or turkey)
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 white onion

For the gravy:

  • 2 tbsp gluten free plain flour
  • 600ml gluten free chicken stock

Any plain gluten free flour blend (or gluten free All Purpose flour) will work for this recipe – the flour is just to thicken the gravy.

I usually use Knorr or Oxo stock pots which are gluten free but you can find a list of gluten free stock cubes in the UK here.

Of course you could add garlic, herbs such as rosemary or thyme, or any extra vegetables such as leeks if you like – I just wanted to keep this simple.

Making gluten free gravy

Making this gluten and dairy free gravy really couldn’t be any simpler – it’s just a case of whisking it all together and then straining it through a sieve.

I tend to make mine in the roasting pan as it means you can scrape all the gorgeous crispy bits and juices out of the pan.

However if it’s easier you can pour all of this into a saucepan and make it that way instead.

It’s also really easy to make this recipe while your meat is resting – which is always important for super tender, juicy slices.

I’ve made this using chicken or turkey but the same process would work for a meat like beef – just use a beef stock instead.

Pair this gluten free gravy with my crispy roast potatoes or gluten free Yorkshire puddings for the perfect Sunday roast.

Gluten and Dairy Free Gravy

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Gluten free dairy free gravy is super simple to make using the meat drippings after roasting chicken or turkey and a few extra ingredients. Makes enough for 2-4 people, depending how much you like to drown your dinner in gravy!


For roasting:

  • Meat of choice (chicken or turkey)
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 white onion

For the gravy:

  • 2 tbsp gluten free plain flour
  • 600ml gluten free chicken stock


  1. Roughly chop the carrot and onion and add to the bottom of your roasting tin before roasting as per the instructions. Once cooked through, remove the meat joint from the pan (draining as much of the juices back into it as possible) and set aside to rest.
  2. Use a potato masher to roughly mash the vegetables and meat drippings together. Place the roasting pan onto a hob and put the heat on the lowest possible setting.
  3. Add the gluten free flour to the pan and whisk until it forms a thick paste. Add a little of the stock and continue whisking until smooth. Continue to keep adding the stock until it's all in the pan and you have a thick sauce.
  4. Bring back to a boil and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and then pour through a sieve to remove all the lumps. Serve hot.


  • This gravy can be made ahead of time and chilled in the fridge for 3-4 days or frozen. Defrost thoroughly before reheating.
