Recipe Tips

  • To ensure that the gravy is gluten-free, make sure you use gluten-free cornstarch and gluten-free Worcestershire sauce.
  • You can use a different cut of chicken such as chicken breast. It mainly just comes down to personal preference. I find chicken thigh cooks a little better in the slow cooker.
  • If you’re not a fan of wine, then you can simply swap it out for chicken stock. However, it does help add a fair bit of flavor.
  • Make sure you season the gravy otherwise you might find the gravy a bit bland.
  • You can adjust the cornstarch if you want a runnier or thicker gravy. The current amount will give you a pretty good consistency but feel free to tinker.
  • For the best results, use homemade chicken stock rather than the powder mixed with water.
