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.

KFC Style Gravy Recipe
- 3 tablespoons butter or vegetable shortening
- 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 piece chicken cube
- 2 cups 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 water and chicken cube. 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.
- Serve hot with fried chicken or mashed potato.
- Share and enjoy!

This was good, but not even close to KFC flavor. There was 0 pepper in it. If you eat KFC gravy one of the first things you notice is the pepper flavor.
Just made this recipe and am in LOVE!!! Only added a little squirt of lemon juice and cannot wait to share this with family for Christmas dinner! thank you for giving me my new gravy -- will never fiddle with pan drippings again.!
My twins was in state of shock when I made your recipe. They said, “Maaaa, nasa kfc philippines ba tayo?” hahaha…truly you are a blessing in every families dining table. God bless you always and thank you for your generosity for sharing your talent with us.
This brown gravy is spot on! Tastes just like KFC (better, actually). Thank you! Keeping this one in my recipe files as a “go to”.
