Spicy Country Style Chicken Gravy


  • 1 lb Italian-style chicken sausage casings remove
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 orange bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1/4 t red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 t garlic powder
  • 4 T butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 c flour
  • 1 t fresh chives minced
  • 1 t fresh thyme minced
  • 2 c milk divided
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube


  1. Heat a skillet to medium. Add the sausage and cook for 3-4 minutes, breaking up. Add the onion, bell pepper, pepper flakes, and garlic powder and continue to cook until vegetables are softened.
  2. Add butter, salt and pepper and stir until butter is fully melted. Sprinkle the flour on top. Stir and mix until the flour completely disappears, scraping the bottom of the pan often, for about 5 minutes. Add the chives and thyme.
  3. Stir in the milk, a bit at a time. Add the bouillon cube and continue to cook, stirring, for 3-5 more minutes. The gravy will thicken as it cools. If it becomes too thick you can add a bit more milk.
