Tips To Get the Best Results: KFC Copycat Gravy

Roux Consistency:

  • Pay attention to the roux (mixture of flour and oil) color. Achieve a golden-brown color without burning it for the best flavor.

Whisking Technique:

  • Whisk continuously when adding the broth to the roux to avoid lumps. A smooth consistency is key to a velvety gravy.

Bouillon Cubes:

  • Dissolve the beef and chicken bouillon cubes completely in warm chicken broth before adding them to the roux. This ensures even distribution of flavor.

Adjust Seasoning:

  • Taste the gravy before serving and adjust the seasoning accordingly. You can add more pepper or other seasonings to suit your preferences.


  • If the gravy is too thin, let it simmer a bit longer to reach the desired thickness. If it's too thick, you can add a bit more broth.

Serve Hot:

  • Gravy is best served hot, so try to serve it immediately after preparation for the most enjoyable experience.
