*Editor's note: Dr. Sears' book "Zone-perfect Meals in Minutes" features several sauce and dressing recipes. "Zoned Country-Style Chicken Gravy" might be more Zoneful than the packaged variety. Zoned Country-style Chicken Gravy Servings: Four 1-cup servings. 1 carbohydrate block each. (That means you can have 1/2 cup of the gravy for 1/2 block of carbohydrate.) 3 cups onions, sliced 2 carb. 8 teaspoons cornstarch 2 carb. 2 1/2 cups strong chicken stock 1 tablespoon white wine 1/2 teaspoon garlic, chopped 1/2 teaspoon celery salt 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes Salt and pepper to taste Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan to form a sauce. (Mix cornstarch with a little cold water to dissolve it before adding to saucepan.) Heat sauce mixture to a storage container, let cool and refrigerate. This sauce may be refrigerated for up to five days, or if you prefer, the sauce may be frozen and defrosted for later use. Although the sauce is freeze-thaw stable, after the sauce has been frozen and defrosted, it may need to be stirred to reincorporate the small amount of moisture that forms on the sauce during the freezing and thawing process.
