Check Out This Recipe For KFC-Style Gravy You Can Make At Home
Lockdown has really brought out the ingenuity in a lot of us, with many heading into their kitchens to try and recreate their favourite fast-food items that they're currently unable to get hold of at the minute.
If you've finally managed to perfect your very own DIY KFC recipe but still feel like something is missing, why don't you whip up a batch of this gravy that is apparently pretty close to the real deal?
Posted on memorieswithdishes.com, the recipe will leave you with a 'creamy pourable gravy sauce' modelled on the finger-lickin' good chain's own brand. Ooof.
To make it you'll need five tablespoons of flour, four tablespoons of butter, one-quarter tablespoon of garlic powder, black pepper and sage, one beef stock cube, one chicken stock cube and two cups of water.
To get your gravy, make up the stock cubes with boiling water and set to one side. Next, mix your flour, garlic powder, black pepper and sage in a bowl.
Then you'll need to melt the butter over a low heat, before adding the flour and herb mixture and stirring constantly.
Once this has gone a nice golden brown colour, slowly start to pour in your stock - remember to keep stirring or it'll go lumpy. Turn the heat up to medium and keep cooking it until it's thickened.

Of course, if you're really missing your KFC fix then you'll be pleased to know that the company recently reopened 11 of its stores, offering takeaway and delivery of a limited menu of items.
A spokesperson for KFC told LADbible: "Over the last week, we've reopened 11 of our restaurants in the UK. They're open for delivery only and are serving a limited menu, operated by fewer team members with new procedures in place to help ensure we're following social distancing guidelines.
"There's still a need for affordable, accessible food at this time - so we want to do our part. We've also donated thousands of meals from all our open restaurants to those on the front-line, including the NHS and key workers, in partnership with Deliveroo, and will continue to do so each week whilst the situation continues."
