How do you cook chicken to taste like Kentucky Fried?
By dr chaos
If you go to www.ecookbooks.net and do a recipe search for that, they have one. they have several copycat recipes for KFC and many other favs. they have a very good free e-book you can download also. good site! hope it helps.
There are countless recipes claiming to clone KFC's original. Just Google "KFC recipe" and you'd get 2,900,000 results.
Here's a particularly interesting one, with a history of KFC. I've never tried it but am a bit skeptical because it asks for 2 envelopes of tomato soup mix and I don't taste any tomato in KFC's chicken. Still, it sounds delicious. Read the comment from LISA, who claimed to have worked for KFC. She provides some hints
Go to CopyKat.com and type in Kentucky Fried Chicken. That's how I got my recipe.
If you're willing to give me your email or Skype address then just click on my contact button to let me know and I'll send you the e-book, "Every Recipe." :-) It has hundreds including El Pollo Loco Chicken, Bailey's Original Irish Cream, Frango Chocolate Mints, International House of Coffee Flavored Coffee, Red Lobster Cheese Biscuits and even Pop Tarts ;-)
KFC was part of an "Unwrapped" show recently on the Food Network. The original recipe, which I believe has more than 10 herbs and spices in it, is under lock and key. Also, they mentioned that the chicken is pressure-cooker fried.
I did find this after doing some searching (chicken is listed at the bottom of page 1):
Kentucky Fried Chicken Is fried in a pressure cooker. The 11 seasonings are the same as Good Seasonings (dried) and all-purposed flour.

I'm not a cook by any means but from what I've read, Pressure Cookers and Pressure Fryers are two different things. In fact, many people warn against using a regular pressure cooker for frying. KFC uses commercial pressure fryers, and the process shouldn't be imitated using a home pressure cooker.
Here's a interesting site warning against using a pressure cooker for frying -- in particular, for making KFC chicken. There's a tab specifically about KFC.
