Copycat KFC Bowl

Copycat KFC Bowl

I know we don’t have the KFC bowl in Middle East, but I saw a viral reel where a person tries this from KFC, and I couldn’t help but make it at home right away! And oh boy was it good?! 
It’s like all your favorites in a bowl. You have creamy mashed potatoes that is layered with a semi thick chicken gravy, which is topped off with corn niblets and finally the fried chicken is added which is topped off with cheese of your choice. I used emmental cheese. Though it’s quite rich and indulgent, a small portion wouldn’t be harmful. 

Without much ado, let’s get started!


For chicken marinade:

250 gms Tender Chicken Breast, cubed
1 Egg
1/2 cup Butter milk*
1/2 tsp Black Pepper powder
1 tsp Paprika/ Red Chilli powder 
1 small Garlic clove, minced
Salt, as required 

Chicken Coating:

  • 3/4 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Paprika/ red Chilli powder 
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper powder 
  • Thyme, a pinch (optional)
  • Dry Parsley, a pinch (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper/ red Chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper, crushed
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion powder 
  • Salt, as required 

Creamy Mashed Potatoes:

  • 3 potatoes
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 cup Milk


  • 1 tsp Butter
  • 1/4 cup Corn

Chicken Gravy:

  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 cup Chicken Stock *
  • 2 tbsp Flour (or more if required, make a paste of flour+water)


  • Emmental Cheese (or any cheeee of your choice)
  • Lettuce leaves 


  1. Marinate the Chicken cubes using the ingredients mentioned above and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, chop the potatoes in the same size and boil and strain and mash well, using a potato masher or a food processor. 
  3. In a pan, add butter, allow to melt and pour in the milk.
  4. Once if almost comes to a boil, pour this milk mixture to the mashed potatoes and combine well to get creamy mashed potatoes .
  5. Now prepare the chicken coating mix, and take the chicken cubes that have been marinating and coat well in the coating mix and fry the chicken pieces. 

  6. Next, in a pan, add butter and add corn and sauté on high flame. 
  7. And set the corn aside.
  8. Next, make the chicken gravy by adding butter, once the butter has melded add flour and mix. Keep flame on the lowest and add milk and whisk well, make sure no lumps are formed. And add more flour paste if required.
  9. Once it reaches the desired consistency, set aside
  10. Now the layering is done by taking a bowl, add the 1st layer , the creamy mashed potatoes, to which the chicken gravy is poured, top up with the cooked corn niblets and finally add in your fried chicken pieces and finish off with your choice of shredded cheese and enjoy!
