Ingredients

Coating Mixture:

Directions

Mix together all the coating ingredients and place in a clean plastic bag. Dip each piece into beaten egg, then into the flour mixture in the bag. Coat the chicken completely with the flour mixture.

Place the oil in a skillet and heat. Brown the chicken in oil slowly (225 degrees F, if you are using an electric skillet), uncovered. Cover the skillet and continue to fry at a very low heat until the chicken is fully cooked, approximately 1 hour.
Drain well on paper towels.

Tips and Variations:

This recipe can be prepared using a deep fryer and is actually perfect for the fryer. Follow the directions on your fryer. Make sure your oil is hot before adding the chicken. The chicken shouldn't be greasy when it is cooked in hot oil, but if the oil is cool, it will absorb the grease.

I think 2 tsp. salted water must be a typo (or I'm misunderstanding). How much water? (02/26/2007)

So you all worked at KFC, I did too and got some mixed out took it home and had burnt fried chicken.

I would like everyone that is talking about the chicken being marinated over night to know that it is marinated. Not over night tho, I worked for the company that KFC gets there chicken from the chicken is injected with herbs and spices. Needless to say no one was allowed in the room that housed the "secret ingredients". It was all done by two people, one that worked the morning shift and one that worked the evening shift.

Hey you can go to KFC home town. Corbin Kentucky and see where it all started, the recipe was bought by Mr Sanders himself from a black lady that lived in Corbin he hired her to work for him. The recipe is in a glass case there at the store. The first KFC of it's kind and is still serving food there. How do I know I am from there. (02/28/2009)

Kentucky Fried Chicken Recipe

Well, I can tell you all for a fact that KFC does not marinate chicken overnight. They only marinate the chicken used for extra crispy and it's done for no more than one hour. I also don't believe that the secret herbs and spices are "injected" directly into the chicken, that just makes no sense at all. The secret herbs and spices are in the flour used to coat the chicken. I spent 8 years managing one and have some pretty intimate knowledge of how things are done. (05/06/2009)
