A COST-FRIENDLY foodie has created his own recipe for the famous KFC Famous Bowl — and at half the price of the original recipe.
She uses ingredients from Dollar Tree to make meals that cost less than $10 for a family of four.
Home Cooking Dollar Tree Dinner (@dollartreedinners) has more than 1 million followers on .
She posts popular videos on meal prep and how to recreate favorite fast foods at home.
The videotapes opens with a close-up shot of the food as the influencer says, “Get a meal prep for some of KFC’s famous dishes.”
“This is one of my favorite Dollar Tree recipes. If you haven’t tried anything else from my channel then you should give this one a try.
“I started by mixing a bag of shredded cheddar and shredded mozzarella.then I mix a packet of brown sauce with two cups of cold water.”
After preparing the cheese and sauce, the woman turned to the stove to make the mashed potatoes, which formed the bottom of the bowl.
“Then I boiled four cups of water on the stove and mixed in two packs of buttery country-style potatoes,” she said.
The influencer heated her gravy on the stove to make sure it thickened but says this can also be done in the microwave.
She continued: “You’ll need two bags of chicken nuggets or chips and cook these inoven or microwave.”
Bowls can be made for immediate use or prepared for later meals and stored in the refrigerator.
Shoppers Dollar Tree advise viewers: “If you’re going to make these to eat right away, heat up a can of corn.
“Skip this step if you plan to reheat the bowl later.”
Once the chicken nuggets are cooked, she cuts them into quarters to “distribute them more evenly throughout meal preparation.
“Now it’s time to assemble!” She claims that when she placed four plastic take-out containers, each one she began to fill with food.
When scooping, she instructs fans on how to measure: “Each box has a cup of mashed potatoes that I spread out on the bottom with a spoon.
“Then add half a cup of corn and some brown sauce to each container.
“Divide the chicken nuggets evenly into each meal and then toss some shredded cheese on top of each one.”
After finishing each meal, she closed the lid to store it until needed.
The video ends with the influencer eating a bite of the meal she just made.
“If you buy these four items for just $10, that’s less than half the price of KFC,” she said.
“This is one of the most satisfying meal prep I’ve made.”
Viewers loved the clip, with many supportive comments – including one wearing: “Oh, definitely save this for later.”
Another said: “I made this the other night and we loved it! We saved money and you played a big part in my pocket-friendly meal journey! Thank you!”
