Gravy doesn't really become anything until you have some fond to work with.

Classic white gravy, a la my semi-Okie grandparents, is:

- bacon grease (couple-three Tbsps)

- Enough flour that your roux becomes roux and no more; add slowly

- enough milk that your roux becomes gravy and no more; add slowly

- salt and pepper to taste

If instead you'd rather pan-roast the chicken, you can pour off most of the chicken fat, add some butter instead of bacon grease, and instead of milk add champagne. That is tasty gravy.
