Ever have a hankering for a certain meal but you just either can’t get out, are trying to save money, or the restaurant isn’t open? I hate when that happens! One of my favorite fast food meals is the KFC Famous Bowl. Something about it makes it the perfect comfort meal after a long day of work. But I don’t always have the time or extra money to drive to the restaurant to get it, so it’s quickly become one of my favorite copycat recipes that I can make at home. The beauty of it is that you don’t really have to “cook” anything. Everything in it can be purchased premade, so it’s really just heating up a few things, and layering them together. It comes together super quickly, and it’s sure to be a family favorite. So I thought I would share this easy and quick copycat KFC famous bowl recipe with those that will enjoy it as much as I do! You can save so much money and time by making it at home. Bonus, it makes for great leftovers as well. Let’s check it out shall we?
Easy and Quick Copycat KFC Famous Bowl Recipe
You Will Need:
- Popcorn chicken (or chicken strips!)
- 1 can of corn
- 3 cups Mashed potatoes (either homemade or even from boxed)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- brown gravy
- Salt and pepper to taste
Directions for making this Copycat KFC Famous Bowl Recipe
Step 1: Cook your popcorn chicken according to package directions. Grab a casserole dish and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
Step 2: In a casserole dish layer your mashed potatoes first, and then your corn on top. Season with salt and pepper.
Step 3: Layer your chicken on top of the corn, then add your cheese. Pour your gravy on top of your cheese. You can use as much or as little as you want. It really helps keeping the cheese from scorching.
Step 4: Once you have your casserole assembled and seasoned to your liking, bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.
And that’s it! Just a little bit of prep work and about 20 minutes of cook time and you will have your very own Easy and Quick Copycat KFC Famous Bowl!
