KFC Style Gravy Recipe

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.

Try this KFC Style Gravy recipe and let me know what you think.

KFC Style Gravy

KFC Style Gravy Recipe


  • 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

Cooking Procedure

  1. Dilute the beef and chicken cubes in water.
  2. Heat a saucepan and put-in the butter. Let the butter melt under low heat.
  3. 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.
  4. Add the remaining flour and continue stirring.
  5. Gradually add the chicken and beef broth (the result of procedure 1) while stirring. Continuous stirring is needed to prevent lumps from forming.
  6. 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.
  7. Serve hot with fried chicken or mashed potato.
  8. Share and enjoy!

Number of servings (yield): 4

    Hi, just wanted to know if i can use this for other fried dishes too like fried pork chops. Or it’s only appropriate for fried chicken? If so, what sauce can you suggest i can use for fried pork chops? Will this gravy rcipe enhance the flavors for my fried pork chops? Or will give it a foul taste?

    • Jahsen, thanks for your question. This should be appropriate for fried pork chops too. I am not sure though about your comment regarding foul taste. Sauces should be able to enhance the flavor of dishes. If your dish has a foul taste then it might be with the manner that you prepared it.

  2. Karen Jones says:

    Where do you get the chicken and beef powder from? Or is this another name for something else?

    • Chicken and beef powder are the actual products. These are similar to chicken bouillons. Knorr is my preferred brand. It can be found in the Hispanic isles of the supermarket.

    I have a question though, how long do you think this would keep frozen/in the refrigerator? Thanks again and God bless you!

    the best ‘tong gravy recipe mo kuya.

  9. can i ask ing paglagay ng all purpose flour with water ba?

  10. hello master pag linagay ba ung all purpose flour imimix wd water?

  11. Thank you po, sir. Nasubukan ko na po. Malaki matitipid tong recipe na ito kasi yung gravy ng McCormick nasa P 23.00 na and 1 cup lang magagawa, mas kokonti pa kung mag-evaporate yung tubig while cooking.
    Yung KFC gravy sa Pinas sa tingin ko me black pepper at hinalong mashed potato. Parang yun ang thickener nya kasi pag nilalagay ko sa ref, umaalsa sya ng parang may mashed potato.
