Fast food can oftentimes be high in calories and fat. However, you can make a more nutritional version of fast food favorites at home. According to KFC, their KFC Famous Bowl with mashed potatoes and gravy has 740 calories, 35 grams of total fat and 2350 mg of sodium. Though it may be alright to eat on occasion, you can make a healthy alternative.
This chicken bowl recipe has only 412 calories, 11.5 grams of fat and 536 mg of sodium per serving, while providing 33 g of protein. These are the reformulated components of an actual KFC bowl. Each bowl features mashed potatoes, corn, chicken nuggets, gravy and one ounce of finely shredded 75% reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese (made with 1% milk).
