  • Melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Once melted, add the garlic powder, pepper, hoisin sauce, thyme and all purpose flour. Mix until incorporated and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and simmer until the sauce thickens (5-10 minutes). An easy way to test if the gravy is done is by coating the back of a spoon and pulling your finger through the gravy. If the trail created doesn’t break, the gravy is at the right consistency.
