After cooking chicken, i poured pan drippings into a bowl an refrigerated it. The next day I skimmed off the hardened fat and was left with a thick gel. I froze it. Can it be used for anything?

Lee12, Yes, you can use that thick gel from the pan drippings to make gravy or use it in soups for extra flavor. Also, I will sometimes cook my chicken or turkey up a day ahead and then when I am reheating it the next day in the oven or crock pot I will add some of that thick gel for moisture. It will melt down and be like a broth when you reheat it. It helps keep the meat moist and maintains its flavor.

Hi Lee12: My cooking school was watching my mom cook and one of the things she did well was make white gravy from fried chicken drippings. She would fry the chicken in a 10" cast iron skillet, when the chicken was done she would transfer it to a serving tray, then she would pour-off all but two or three tablespoons of the drippings. To make a roux she added two or three tablspoons of all purpose flour to the hot drippings, stirring it with a whip to prevent lumping. Then she would salt and pepper the roux, still cooking it over a very hot burner, then she would add a quart of whole milk, stirring as she did so. When the gravy began to boil it would thicken and make the best white gravy (also called milk gravy) you could ever imagine. She served the gravy with her mile-high buttermilk biscuits and the fried chicken, spooning the gravy over the biscuits. Mmmmmm good!
