My Slimming World friendly KFC Gravy Burger Fakeaway Recipe!
The real thing can set you back lots of syns and calories, but my fakeaway version can save you both calories and syns!
As the Queen of the Fakeaway
, I thought I better give this one a go! I have loads of other KFC Fakeaway Recipes
too if you fancy something else.
I was surprised how well this turned out, it was absolutely delicious!
The key to this burger, is making sure the hash browns have a 'well' in them to hold all the Gravy
, and of course, some deliciously rich, thick gravy.
I put a lot of my favourite KFC recipes together for this one.
As for the gravy mayo, I wasn't too sure about that one! I mixed some of the gravy together with mayo, and it was surprisingly tasty!
Can I reduce the syns or calories?
I used a proper white bun for my burger which was 7 syns, but if you are following Slimming World you could use a Schar Gluten Free Ciabatta Roll which can be used as a healthy extra.
You could also leave out the bun, swap for a wholemeal bun or gluten free bun.
This tasted like a real treat, even though it was far fewer calories, syns and fat than the real thing.
The beauty of this is that you can add as much or as little gravy as you like!

You will need:
For the chicken:
2 Small Skinless Chicken Breast Fillets
2 slices of 400g wholemeal bread
1.5 teaspoon chilli powder (adjust to your spice taste)
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 medium potatoes, peeled and grated
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Low calorie cooking spray
1 large onion, finely diced
1/ clove garlic
Pinch of salt & pepper
1 pint chicken stock.
2 tbsp Red Wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp low fat cream cheese
Bun of your choice (Gluten free ciabatta if using as your HEb)
1 tsp mayo mixed with 1 tsp gravy
Preheat oven to 180 degrees/ 170 fan oven.
Start off by preparing the gravy, as this needs to reduce for an hour,
Add the onion, garlic, salt, pepper, chicken stock, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce to a pan.
Leave to simmer for 1 hour, the longer the better!
When ready to serve, you can add the gravy to a blender and blitz until smooth.
Next prepare the hash browns.
Using a clean tea towel, add the shredded potato in the middle of it. Squeeze all the liquid out of the potatoes using the tea towel. This is what gives them the crispiness.
Remove from the tea towel, place in a bowl and add all the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
I moulded them into the correct shape, then pressed down the centres to make the well. Set aside.
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 egg 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. Use one hand for touching the eggy chicken, and the other hand for touching it when breadcrumbed. This stops your fingers getting breadcrumbed too!
Place the chicken and hashbrowns on a baking tray and spray with low calorie cooking spray.
Add the chicken and hashbrowns in the oven for 25 minutes, or until golden and crispy and the chicken is cooked through.
Add the gravy mayo to the bottom of the bun, then the chicken, then the cheese, then the hashbrown, then add your gravy on top!
