KFC Style Famous Bowl Recipe | Slimming Friendly Fakeaway

Is there anything better than a Slimming World Friendly KFC Style Fakeaway recipe?

Scroll down for full recipe and instructions

Although I have never been to America, I feel as though I have learnt a lot about American culture from all the reality TV shows I watch! I was watching something the other day, I can't even remember what, and they were eating something off the KFC menu, 'Famous Bowl.

Creamy mashed potatoes, sweet corn and bite-sized chunks of crispy chicken are layered together then drizzled with home-style gravy and topped with a perfect blend of three shredded cheeses'.

This is not something I have ever seen on a UK KFC menu, nor is it remotely Slimming World friendly, so I set to work.

You will need-

200g Mashed potato per person
40g shredded light cheddar per person
1 tin sweetcorn, drained

For the chicken
2 large chicken breasts (or cuts of chicken of your choice)
4 slices of 400g wholemeal bread 
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon ground sage
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 eggs

For the gravy
1 large red onion, halved and sliced
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon Italian herbs
720ml of beef stock
splash of balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
spray oil
black pepper


Spray a large saucepan over a medium heat with some spray oil.

Add the onion and garlic and cook until caramelised, add some stock to prevent the onions from sticking to the pan.

Add the herbs, remaining stock, tomato paste and a splash of balsamic vinegar, bring to the boil and reduce heat.

Allow to simmer covered for approx 45 mins to bring out the flavour.

Meanwhile, slice the chicken breasts into small, bite size pieces.

Blitz the bread until fine breadcrumbs in a blender.  Put into a bowl and add all of the seasonings and mix until everything is blended together to create your coating.

Crack the eggs and mix together.  The chicken needs to be dipped in the egg and then to the breadcrumb mixture and repeated to get an even coating.

Bake the chicken in the oven for 20-25 mins on a medium heat, until cooked through.

When the gravy has cooked for the required time, add to a blender and blitz until smooth.

For the bowl to be like the KFC version, it needs to be layered as 1. mashed potato, 2. gravy, 3. sweetcorn, 4. chicken, 5. cheese, 6, gravy.
