There is nothing better than a delicious savory breakfast of Homemade Chicken Sausage Gravy and Buttermilk Biscuits. The soft flaky biscuits are the perfect companion for the southern sausage gravy.
I love to make this recipe for my family on Sunday mornings and it’s always a treat! We all love how flavorful the gravy is thanks to a homemade Sausage spice mix and Homemade Chicken Broth. The spice mix gets added to the chicken to create chicken sausage that is so delicious that you will want to eat all of it right from the skillet! The delicious sausage gravy is served over hot flaky Buttermilk Biscuits right out of the oven. This recipe will soon be your family’s favorite as well!
Key Notes about Homemade Chicken Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Cast iron skillet
I love to use a cast-iron skillet for this recipe. The skillet allows the meat to get perfectly brown without burning in the pan. The crispy bits leftover from browning the meat allows for an even richer sausage gravy!
I don’t buy ground chicken at the store, because my family loves to buy whole non-GMO chickens instead. After we break down the chicken into parts, I usually take one or two of the chicken breasts, cut them into cubes, and then pulse them in my food processor.
It’s really easy to make your own ground chicken and I like the taste better than the store-bought!
We have had this food processor for years and it works great for making ground chicken, just pulse it until you reach the right consistency! I find that using the small food processor in this set works the best for making ground meat.
Homemade Spice mix
This homemade spice mix includes sausage seasonings such as - thyme, sage, garlic powder, and black pepper, but also one of my favorite seasonings - All Purpose seasoning. I have mentioned before that I love All-Purpose seasoning in my post all about my favorite seasonings and spices. It is one of my all-time favorite seasonings! Something about it just makes everything better! I’m sure the Chicken Sausage Gravy will be amazing without it, but why would I want to not put it in? I’ll link it here if you want to try it in your cooking as well!
Homemade Chicken Broth and Milk
In order to avoid a lumpy sausage gravy, make sure your Homemade Chicken Broth and milk are cold when you add them to the hot roux - butter/ flour mixture.
The hot flaky biscuits are an important part of this dish! I have an amazing recipe for Homemade Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits on the blog. I made a batch for this recipe before I made the gravy and they were done as soon as the gravy finished cooking. They pair well with this recipe and I hope you try them out!
