KFC STYLE GRAVY

Positive feedbacks keep coming-in as a result of the different fried chicken recipes that we featured to date. Along with it are requests for a good gravy recipe to compliment the fried chicken. There isn’t any good gravy recipe that I can think of other than KFC’s so I tried whipping-up some ingredients to arrive at the closest copycat KFC Gravy recipe (in my opinion) using basic ingredients that should be available in your local supermarket.

While trying to browse the internet on this topic, I discovered several KFC gravy recipes that claim to be the closest. Though it might be true, these recipes require the use of canned beef gravy plus many other ingredients which I think is not practical at all. I find it unreasonable to use ready mix or canned gravy to arrive at another gravy variation, don’t you? Saving money is also an important factor; if there is a recipe that will cost less and still give me the taste that I’m looking for – why wouldn’t I go for it?

This gravy recipe that we have here works well with fried chicken and mashed potatoes. If you are one of those who think that gravy is some kind of soup, slurping this or mixing it with rice will work too.

Ingredients

4 tbsp. butter or shortening
5 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. sage – OPTIONAL
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 beef boullion cube
1 chicken boullion cube

2 cups water

 

How to make it 

 

Boil the water and add bouillon cubes; stir until dissolved. Set aside.
Add flour, sage, garlic powder and black pepper in small bowl. Mix and set aside.
Add butter in saucepan over low heat; heat until butter is melted, stirring as needed.
Add flour mixture to melted butter, stirring constantly.
Cook until it takes on a golden brown color.
Slowly pour the bouillon water to the flour/butter mixture. Stir or whisk constantly to prevent lumps.
Turn the heat up to medium and continue cooking until you have a creamy, pourable gravy sauce.
