Copycat KFC Gravy

From An Expat Cooks

Copycat KFC Gravy

Serves 4


  • 3 Tablespoons (42 g) butter
  • 5 Tablespoons (39 g) all purpose flour
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube or 2 teaspoons chicken powder
  • 1 beef bouillon cube or 2 teaspoons beef powder
  • 2 1/4 cups (540 mL) water


Dissolve the chicken and beef bouillon cubes in the water.

Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add 2 tablespoons of flour and cook on low heat, stirring, about 7-8 minutes. The flour should be a medium brown color. Use caution not to burn it! (I start my heat on 4 and crank it up as needed. Every stove is different though.)

Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of flour and stir for another minute or two. Gradually add the water with the dissolved bouillon, whisking to prevent lumps. Raise the temperature to medium and bring the gravy to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until desired thickness is reached.

Serve over potatoes or meat!
