"As Close to KFC as I Can Get It" Chicken Gravy

I made this on a dare. My husband, after trying my chicken, dared me to make something close to his favorite mashed potatoes and gravy -- which also happens to be from KFC. I took him up on that dare, and this is what I came up with. I have seen many recipes that use beef bouillon or beef gravy as a base, and I wanted something that tasted more like poultry. It's not an exact replica, but it's a yummy result.
