Homemade Famous KFC Bowl Recipe

This is definitely not the most photogenic of meals, but it's the most delicious!!  Homemade mashed potatoes, topped with homemade fried chicken, some gravy, corn, and cheese... droooool.  I want another one as we speak.  Once you try this, you'll never think of KFC's bowl the same.  There's no going back.


1 1/2 lb. chicken breast, cut into about 1" thick cubes
2 cups flour
1/8 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
dash of paprika
dash of salt
dash of pepper
1 egg
1 cup milk
oil for deep frying (in deep fryer or deep skillet)

8 large potatoes- (peel and dice)
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup milk

2-10.25 oz. cans beef gravy
2 cups corn, warmed
8 oz. shredded colby jack cheese


-In a shallow bowl, beat together egg and 1 cup milk.  In another shallow dish combine the flour, paprika, salt, and pepper.  
-Dip the chicken in the egg mix, flour mix, then egg mix & flour mix one more time (so double dip the lil dudes).
- Deep fry the chicken in batches of oil at 375 degrees until chicken is golden brown and cooked thoroughly.  Place chicken on plates lined with paper towel when done to drain off any additional oil.
-While chicken is cooking, add the potatoes and dash of salt to a large pot filled with water just above the top of the potatoes.  Boil water and cook potatoes until fork tender. 
- Once potatoes are done, drain and add butter, milk, and dash of pepper and mash until smooth.
-Assemble your bowls starting with mashed potatoes, top those with corn, then chicken, gravy and cheese... YUMMMMMM
