My kids love KFC Rice Bowls that are layered with flavoured rice, mashed potatoes, gravy and popcorn chicken. The blend of flavours really go well together.

It’s really easy to put together these rice bowls at home. Little pre planning for mashed potatoes is all that’s needed. This particular rice bowl became an instant hit at home.

Melt the butter in a saucepan, add flour, rosemary, thyme, onion powder, salt, pepper and cook for 1 minute.
