KFC secret chicken recipe revealed?

KFC secret chicken recipe?
24 August 2016

Lots of food shops have a 'secret recipe', and one of the most famous is the one used to make KFC's fried chicken.

There's a secret blend of 11 herbs and spices, and it might have been shared with everyone, so we can make our own!

We can't be certain, but someone spoke to the Chicago Tribune to meet Colonel Sanders' nephew, Joe Ledington. While they were looking through some old photos and whatnot, there was a handwritten list of 11 spices.

The note was written by Claudia, Colonel Sanders' second wife.

The Chicago Tribute have a photo of the recipe, which we can't really swipe off them without getting in trouble, so you can click here and see it in their gallery.

We can however, copy the words from it.

Here are the 11 spices that are likely to be used in KFC's fried chicken recipe if you want to make your own:

  • 2/3 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Thyme
  • 1/2 ts Basil
  • 1/3 ts Oregano
  • 1 ts Celery salt
  • 1 ts Black pepper
  • 1 ts Dried mustard
  • 4 ts Paprika
  • 2 ts Garlic salt
  • 1 ts Ground ginger
  • 3 ts White pepper
You'll need to mix it with two cups of white flour as well, if you want to get stuck in.
This is great news for junk fans. Just like the time we told you how to make your own Big Mac sauce (and we tried it, and it absolutely works). If you want to make your own yellow gunk for your burgers, have a look at our recipe here.
