KFC Gravy recipe

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 can Campbell’s chicken broth (plus 1 can of water)*
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon MSG or Accent Flavor Enhancer
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

  1. First make a roux by combining the oil with 1 1/2 tablespoons of flour in a medium saucepan over low heat. Heat the mixture for 20-30 minutes, stirring often, until it is a dark chocolate color.

  2. Remove the roux from the heat, add the remaining ingredients to the saucepan and stir.

  3. Put the saucepan back over the heat, turn it up to medium and bring the gravy to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until thick.
Makes about 3 cups.

*If Campbell’s is unavailable use 2 1/2 cups of any chicken stock.
