KFC is reopening 100 branches across the UK for delivery and takeaways, but unfortunately Merseyside is not on the list.
But if you are despairing of a KFC-style solution, we’ve figured out how you can make their famous sauce at home and it couldn’t be easier.
Recipe box company Gousto has developed some KFC-inspired meals and the first is its sauce, which pairs perfectly with fried chicken, or even Sunday roast, reports WalesOnline.
Jordan Moore, senior recipe developer at Gousto, said: “We hear that a certain colonel says that the secret to his favorite takeaway sauce is to use the drippings at the bottom of the chicken skillet as his sauce base. But don’t worry – olive oil works just as well. “
And Jordan has a tip for future batches. He said, “We found that freezing leftover drips in a covered container means they’re ready to pick up and use whenever you want, adding a spicy umami kick to your sauce.”
Here we show you how to prepare KFC-style sauce in three steps, using only four ingredients.
Dissolve the bouillon cube and Marmite in 450 ml of boiled water.
Add the fried chicken juice (or olive oil) to a saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add the flour and cook for 30 seconds until a sandy paste forms.
Add broth to skillet and simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened to a sauce-like consistency.
