KFC Original Fried Chicken does not have Cayenne pepper in it.
As for the copycat cole slaw, KFC adds onions to their cole slaw. Yours does not.

This site is a bunch of cooks and KFC crazy people trying to re-create the colonels original 11 herbs and spices. I have tried the latest recipie from this site and it is by far the best KFC on the web so far. Way better than any copycat recipe! I have tryed over 20 copycat recipes so far and they were all crap except this recipe. Still not 100% KFC but pretty close. No matter what anyone claims, no recipe on the net tastes like KFC so dont waste your time. The best is on this site, and as you will be able to see for your self, if anyones ever going to figure it out, its these guys. (04/05/2008)

When I was a kid I worked there this is how they did it. Nothing but straight flour, you can add salt pepper if you want but when I worked there it was straight white flour

Make a milk and egg dip bhy using a couple eggs, water and milk. Put chicken in milk and egg dip. Take out roll all pieces in flour and press down hard to get as much flour as possible to stick. Here's the part how to make it extra crispy.

Place chicken a second time in milk and egg dip for 30 seconds, then take chicken out and put back in flour and press hard again to get flour on the chicken. Now fry it and see if its like extra crispy KFC.

It's not plain flour! KFC's flour is shipped in unmarked boxes, it has the spices already mixed in it. They dip the chicken in a milk & egg mixture then into the flour/spice mixture and into a deep fryer pressure cooker. The extra crispy is dipped and floured twice. (07/20/2008)

Copycat Kentucky Fried Chicken Recipe

This is the KFC original recipe chicken
I worked there and know how it was made and there procedures to racking the chicken
1 tea spoon dry egg powder
1 tea spoon dry milk
2 cups of all purpose flour
2 tea spoons of black pepper
1 &frac; teaspoons of Accent flavour enhancer
3 &frac; tablespoons of salt
&frac; spoon of dry garlic powder
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon tarragon
1/2 teaspoon sage
Water and dipping basket if possible

You will need a pressure cooker for this at the temperature of 375°F /190°C

Now to rack this chicken get one full chicken cut into 9 pieces 2 ribs 2 wings 2 thighs 2 drums and a crown
In a blender mix all the above ingredients together very well and place in a large bowl or tub for mixing.
And to a separate large tub add water to almost fill it and a mesh basket (similar to one in a chip pan).
Add all the chicken to the basket and dip in the water shake the basket seven times and add the chicken to the flour.
Fold the chicken in the flour mix ten times.
Then press on the flour mix seven times with the chicken still in the flour mix.
Find the wings and snap the elbow this is tricky but can be done after the elbow is snapped, fold the wing to resemble a triangular shape with one wing in each hand give your wrists a knock to shake of excess flour place these in the centre of the rack repeat this for all the chicken. Dip the drumsticks back in the water and shake the basket seven times and add the chicken to the flour.
Fold the chicken in the flour mix ten times.
Then press on the flour mix seven times with the chicken still in the flour mix this is called the 7-10-7 b.t.w.
Rack the chicken so the thigh bones are to the left and the straight part is facing out then in.
To the right of them place the thighs then to the top of the thighs the crown then the wings to the right of the thighs and the ribs to the right of the wings place.

Place in the pressure cooker for 7-10 minutes.
For 18 pieces or more its 15-20 minutes.

I think one thing that's SERIOUSLY missing from this all is the fact that KFC MARINATES their chicken overnight. Without the marination, it won't be right.

Also, the pressure fryers do change the taste of a couple of the spices slightly. Enough to confuse people who write copycat recipes considerably.

The extra crispy chicken is done with a different (size and maybe kind?) of chicken than the original (08/05/2008)

Copycat Kentucky Fried Chicken Recipe

I worked at KFC in 93 and they got the flour mix in bags they did not mix it themselves. They did not marinate the chicken overnight. The crispy chicken was the exact same chicken but the flour mixture for it came in a different bag it wasn't the same mix as the original. The best recipe I've found to match the cole slaw is on it uses buttermilk, vinegar and lemon juice. As with the chicken all we had to do was shred the veggies the seasoning came in a bag without ingredients on it.(b)(/b)(b)(/b) (08/13/2008)

The recipe is a secret and sent to all locations from corporate supplier. I see numerous different people all claiming to have worked there and most giving completely inaccurate directions for how KFC prepares there chicken.

There is absolutely no marinating and it is not plain flour and none of you have the recipe. You'd be famous if you knew it! We'll see you on 60 minutes or the likes!

This blog gave the appearance of having some good "copycat" recipes, not a bunch of people claiming to have inside info.

If you don't know, which you don't, make room for good cooks who have tried to assimilate the flavor and can give their recipes for those of us who want to get as close to the real thing as possible! (08/16/2008)

It's hilarious reading all these phony recipes, all with different ingredients, and ALL claiming to be the real recipe! "I used to work there back in (insert date) and this is how they did it" The colonel is laughing in his grave! (09/09/2008)

Copycat Kentucky Fried Chicken Recipe

I can't believe how many of you claim to have worked at KFC and know how the chicken is made, yet you seem to have no clue. I have several years of KFC experience and have managed two KFC stores.

Several years ago, the chicken was marinated in the stores. There was a different marinade for Original, Extra Tasty Crispy, and Tender Roast. It was tumble marinated for around 10 minutes, not overnight. Instead of in-store marination, the chicken is now injected with the marinade prior to shipment. The same chicken is used for Original Recipe and Extra Tasty Crispy.

The flour is shipped to the stores in 25lb bags. It is simply breading flour, not a premix containing the seasonings. The "spices and herbs" are mixed into the flour in the store. The mixture includes some fine salt, some dried milk and egg, and a package of the secret seasonings.

Original Recipe is breaded as follows:
Dip chicken in cold water
Drain and shake/roll in basket 7 times
Dump chicken into flour
Fold 10 times
Press the flour onto the chicken 7 times
Fold 10 times
Grab a piece of chicken in each hand and tap your wrists together to remove excess breading
Fold wings back

The chicken is then cooked in a pressure cooker for approximately 15 minute. The pressure and temperature is programmed into the pressure cooker and varies during the cooking cycle.

OK I used to work at KFC. Here's the real way to get the genuine taste of the restaurant. It's very tricky, and you have to really follow these directions or it won't work.

Go to the nearest KFC and step up to the counter and place your order!

If you are really that obsessed with it, this is the best way. (09/09/2008)

By Jennie

Thanks Jim-Bob...

I had forgotten how that worked. I worked at a KFC in high school. That was back before they ruined the extra-crispy. Around 1983 or 84. (09/27/2008)
