The Secret KFC Recipe?


As a good old fashioned geek who loves non healthy, fattening greasy food I was amazed when I heard on the radio, and saw on the LBC Web site what purports to be the Colonel's special recipe.

In your opinion is it legit and do you agree with me that this is MUCH more important than Jagger or Yahoo's new update?

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
ΒΌ tsp nutmeg
1/4tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp celery salt
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp dry mustard
4 tbsp paprika
2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp ground ginger
3 tbsp MSG (Accent)Monosodium gluscomate

Mix all ingredients well in a large bowl. Dip chicken pieces in beaten eggs, turn them over in regular bread crumbs and them immerse them in the flour-spices mixture above.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place the chicken in a tray and cover with foil (shiny side out)and cook 40 minutes. Then remove the foil then cook for another 40 minutes, basting lightly with oil 5 minutes before the end. Stand 5 minutes and serve.


maybe, yes and no

It may be legit.

yes, it's more important than jagger.

no, the cooking method is wrong. kfc is fried in oil in pressure cookers. standard waiting time for extra crispy if they don't have it, but are feeling nice, is 15 minutes, so the 40 minutes cooking time won't cut it.

please try it out and report back on the taste test!

...and cover with foil

...and cover with foil (shiny side out)and...

That part gives it away as a myth. Everybody knows it makes no difference if shinyside is in or out.
