KFC Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

3 tablespoons butter or vegetable shortening
5 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 piece chicken cube or 2 teaspoons chicken powder
1 piece beef cube or 2 teaspoons beef powder
2  1/4 cups water

Dilute the beef and chicken cubes in water. Heat a saucepan and put in the butter. Let the butter melt under low heat. Add 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour and cook in low heat while continuously stirring for 7 to 8 minutes or until the color turns medium brown. There is a tendency that the flour might burn when overcooked or if high heat is applied. Be extra cautious.

Add the remaining flour and continue stirring. Gradually add the chicken and beef broth while stirring. Continuous stirring is needed to prevent lumps from forming. Put the heat to medium and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes more while stirring once in a while until the texture thickens.

Walmart’s Great Value Popcorn Chicken (not nuggets) -  HINT! They taste better when cooked in the oven rather than the microwave.  Truth be told my kids prefer the Great Value over the name-brand popcorn chicken.
Mashed potatoes – You can make boxed or homemade.  For it to taste more like the mashed potatoes at KFC, make boxed.
Heinz Chicken Gravy -  I buy the Heinz in the glass jar, it’s as close as I could find to Kentucky Fried Chicken’s but let’s face it, there’s nothing like theirs!
Finely Shredded Colby and Monterrey Jack Cheese – I buy this shredded  in Walmart’s Great Value brand as well.
Corn -  The original Mashed Potato Bowls come with corn although we have them leave it off.  If you do like corn on yours,  I recommend buying frozen corn.

KFC is offering a new variation on their Famous Bowl with the new, limited-time Loaded Potato Bowl. It features a bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy topped with corn, diced Extra Crispy tenders, a new bacon cheese sauce, green onions, and three cheese blend. Basically, it just adds the new sauce and green onions to the Famous Bowl.
