How to Reheat KFC Gravy? (the best method revealed)

Check out the picture above ☝️, gravy, gravy, and more gravy (I love it on everything lol)…


I was under the impression for a considerable amount of time that dipping KFC chicken in gravy was strange (their gravy is amazing)…


However, I did end up changing my mind. But what happens if you have leftover gravy?


This leads us to the question: how to reheat KFC gravy? After doing the research, here’s what I uncovered…


Best Method: For optimal results, I recommend doing so in a saucepan over a moderate heat and stirring it frequently to ensure that it is heated evenly throughout.



After conducting additional investigation, I discovered additional information that is important for you to be aware of; therefore, continue reading…



The microwave is the quickest and most efficient way to reheat the gravy…

FYI: In the event that you need to reheat the gravy in the microwave, the following guidelines should be followed:


Transfer the gravy to a microwave-safe container with a shallow depth, and then

 at intervals of 30 seconds while stirring. Repeat this process until the gravy is liquid and steaming hot.


A Skillet Is an Ideal Device to Use When Reheating Gravy (here’s why)

When reheating gravy, it is best to do so on a low and slow setting. Here, “low” refers to both the heat and the size of the pan…


Choose a skillet over a pan if you want to expand the surface area of the gravy so that you can reheat it more gently and evenly. The process of reheating gravy requires three steps, which are outlined below.


Best Method:


  • Put it in the skillet with a spoon since doing so will break up the gelled gravy into chunks that are easier to reheat.

  • Adjust the heat so that it is low and do not heat the pan before adding the gravy. Begin the process of slowly reheating the cool gravy in a pan that is also cool.

  • Stir till simmering… FYI: Reheating the gravy while stirring it will assist ensure that it is heated uniformly.



Can I refrigerate KFC gravy?

When stored properly in the refrigerator, gravy has a shelf life of about three to four days. In the event that it is not used within that time period, it can be frozen for between four and six months.


How can one thicken gravy that has been reduced too much? Make a paste out of equal parts butter that has been softened and all-purpose flour by mashing them together with a fork.


The paste should be added to the gravy piece by piece while it is brought back up to a boil. Continue doing this until the gravy achieves the required thickness.


Is it possible to consume cold gravy?

That’s not how things usually work at all. When it comes to food, foods that are higher in fat content are considered to have a “better” taste when they are more liquid-like.


It has something to do with the degree to which the lipids are unfolded and spread out. Because fat and drippings are combined with a thickening agent, such as a roux (which consists of starch and butter), gravy always tastes best when it is warm.


What causes jelly to form when gravy is boiled? Simply reheat it on the stovetop or in the microwave, and if you find the gelatinous texture repulsive like I do, thin it out with water, wine, or store-bought stock.

This indicates that you did a great job making the gravy. If it sets up like that, it indicates that the starches have been cooked and that the proteins have been added to the roux in the correct proportions.


How can you make the gravy from the leftovers thicker?..


If the consistency of your gravy is on the runny side, consider thickening it by combining a little amount of cold water with three to four tablespoons of flour or cornstarch and whisking the mixture until it forms a homogeneous paste.


Whisk the mixture into the gravy in a slow and steady manner, adding only a small amount at a time, until the gravy begins to thicken.


How can you tell if gravy has gone bad?

How do you tell whether chicken gravy that has been opened has gone bad or spoiled?


The best method is to smell and look at the gravy; it should be thrown out if the chicken gravy acquires an unpleasant odor, flavor, or appearance, or if mold grows on it at any point.


Are KFC Bowls safe to heat in the microwave?

I think the real question is… Can you heat up the KFC plastic containers in the microwave


Absolutely! They basically constructed these containers out of the same material that is used to make storage containers that are safe to be heated in the microwave.


Since the plastic containers already come with lids, you are able to keep a variety of meals inside of them.



Can You Eat KFC the Day After Getting It?

If you keep your KFC in the refrigerator rather than leaving it out at room temperature for an extended amount of time, then it will be OK to consume the next day. In the refrigerator, it will stay fresh for between two and three days.


Can You Freeze KFC Gravy?

Absolutely, the gravy from KFC may be stored in the freezer…


Because KFC’s gravy is made from scratch each day, there is no reason to be concerned that it had been frozen at some point in the past.


Before you freeze the gravy, make sure it has totally cooled down. You could also want to transfer the gravy to a container that is slightly larger than necessary to make room for the expansion that will occur when the gravy is frozen.


Don’t forget to include the date when it was frozen, too. KFC Gravy may be stored safely in the freezer for approximately four months without spoiling.


Gravy from KFC being thawed out (how to do it)

You may thaw KFC by placing it in the refrigerator overnight or leaving it out on the counter for about four hours. You also have the option of reheating the gravy from its frozen state.

Put your burner on high, and in a skillet, heat just enough vegetable oil to make a shallow fry. Adjust your stove to maintain the heat. After the oil has reached a temperature of 300 degrees Fahrenheit, you will add the fried chicken, and it will only take two to three minutes per side for the fried chicken to regain its crispiness.


Final Thoughts

So, class, what did we learn today?


We now know that for the best results, you should do this in a saucepan over a moderate heat and stir it often to make sure it heats evenly all the way through.


Also, when it comes to food, foods that are more liquid-like and have more fat in them are thought to taste “better.” It has something to do with how spread out and unfolded the lipids are.


Because fat and drippings are mixed with a thickening agent like a roux, which is made of starch and butter, gravy always tastes best when it is warm. 


Just heat it up on the stove or in the microwave, and if you don’t like the way it feels (like I do), add water, wine, or store-bought stock to thin it out. This means you did an excellent job making the gravy.


If it sets up like that, it means that the starches were cooked and that the right amount of proteins were added to the roux. Enjoy the rest of your day, always stay safe, and treat others with kindness & respect. Until next time!
