The KFC Gravy used to be made fresh with the Cracklings. Now it comes in a pouch and all you have to do is add water. Thank god for modified starch products. Like the Chicken recipes Gravy is another immensely popular item in the KFC menu. It has a distinct taste and liked by many people around the world.
- 1 1/2 tablespoons shortening, melted
- 3 tablespoons of Original Breading Flour
- 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1 can Campbell’s Condensed Chicken Stock
- 1 can water
First we are going to make a roux with the melted shortening and 1 1/2 tablespoon of breading flour. Cook this over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until the roux browns in color to resemble a nice milk chocolate color. Once the mixture turns brown remove it from the heat and add the remaining flour and slowly add the liquid(s) to incorporate it so no lumps. Bring the mixture to a boil and boil for 2 minutes reduce the heat and allow the mixture to thicken which would take about 3 to 5 minutes.
*That is just the flour that you use to bread the chicken with.
