Fried Chicken & KFC Style Gravy

KFC Chicken Gravy Recipe

Here’s my quick and easy recipe for fried chicken and gravy. The coating is made from seasonings, flour and egg meaning you can whip up a batch in no time. I chose to use paprika, garlic and cayenne to season my batter – but you can use your favorite spices, add some chilli, thyme, five spice or whatever you fancy – cooking is all about experimenting and finding the flavors you love!

Fried chicken is not complete without a great dipping sauce – and today we’re having it with southern style gravy from Mayfair – which is just like the gravy you get at KFC! The packaging looks like this:

The Mayfair Gravy is super quick and easy too (simply mix the gravy powder with cold water and boil for a couple of minutes). It tastes really similar to the KFC gravy – it has a distinct flavor of sage and garlic and costs just £1 for a tub in home bargains and B&M.

Here’s the recipe for fried chicken – let me know how you get on in the comments below!

  6. Heat oil in a large pan to a medium heat, choose a deep pan – never fry in a shallow pan.
  7. When the oil is hot, add the chicken strips to the oil – id recommend you do this in batches to not overcrowd the pan and give yourself enough time to turn the chicken when needed.

  8. Turn the chicken after cooking for 5/6 minutes, and allow to cook on the other side for a further 5/6 minutes – until the coating is brown and the chicken is cooked through (slice one in half – it should be white throughout and juices run clear).
