      This was the closest clone recipe I have ever attempted. The person that rated this as bland must have made a mistake. <br/><br/>I made this exactly as the recipe directed. I then purchased some mashed potatoes and gravy from Popeye's and did a taste test. Extremely close. So close that without a side-by-side comparison you can't tell the difference. <br/><br/>Some suggestions to make it even closer. <br/><br/>Taste - this is slightly saltier, hotter and has less chicken flavor than Popeye's. I suggest using low sodium broth and salting to taste. Use ever so slightly less cayenne. Also add one or two tablespoons chicken base to up the chicken flavor.<br/><br/>Consistency - Popeye's gravy is thin. This recipe is even thinner as directed. I chose to up the simmer time in future attempts to get the desired consistency. <br/><br/>Wildcard - There is a subtle flavor in the original that I can't copy. I originally thought it was a shellfish base but I added some clam juice to a recipe and it wasn't that. I finally gave up without success.<br/><br/>Except for the wildcard flavor this is a fantastic recipe. I make extra and use it as my gravy with all chicken recipes.

      I don't know if this is popeyes gravy but it was a good recipe. I had to add extra seasoning and salt to mines. I think I can go without the gizzards next time. I had a strong taste to it that I didn't like too much.
