CAD's lame thread with lame pics about his lame KFC original recipe experiment
First get you a whole bird. I bought a whole one and cut it up myself because it was cheaper that way.

Next, mix a cup of buttermilk and one egg together then throw the raw chicken in there to enjoy a tasty bath.

Then go ahead & put on a hot pan of your favorite oil on the stove. Not too hot.. medium high works.. Don't want the chicken to get too dark before it's done or that will overpower the flavor of the spices.

Then just make your batter. The secret is to have all the ingredients on hand. I like using the cajun injector thingie from Academy to batter up my chicken.




11 spices — combine with 2 cups white flour

2/3 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon thyme
1/2 tablespoon basil
1/3 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon celery salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon dried mustard
4 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons garlic salt
1 tablespoon ground ginger
3 tablespoons white pepper

Toss together then put a few pieces in the hot oil.. Cook about 25-30 minutes.. Wings get done quicker so take them out first.



Then place on paper towels.




C'est voila! Pretty damn tasty chicken and it actually has a better flavor than KFC you buy and the chicken pieces are WAY bigger.

Next time, take it out of the oil and put it on a wire rack to drain.

Are the spices still a secret? How did you figure this out?

about a year ago someone was touring KFC HQ from Chicago Tribune and a photo caught the hand-written recipe on the CEO's desk or something like that.

hilarity ensued when the photo was blown up and posted to internet.

It's the 1/3 Tsp of "Origino" that makes that blend so special.

You can't find it just anywhere.

A pic of the Popeye's recipe would have been real gold.

Either a liquid/oil thermometer or I would recommend an infrared thermometer. It's perfect for this task.

Were you going for the "original" recipe or "extra crispy"?

ETA: Didn't read the subject very well. I believe the original recipe is done with a pressure cooker......
