KFC ChickenWho loves KFC? For sure you’re one of those who loves the tasty KFC fried chicken. I still remember that slogan “Kapag Fried Chicken… mag-KFC” and the jingle line “Finger-lickin’ good at KFC”. I always hear that jingle song in many KFC stores way back 5 years ago I think. I really enjoyed eating Hot and Crispy chicken, hot shots, their big fries with gravy.. so yummy! not to mention their KFC Original Recipe Chicken, made with a secret blend of 11 herbs and spices freshly prepared and pressure-cooked to perfection! That recipe still remains the trade secret and the only complete, handwritten copy of the recipe is kept in a vault in corporate headquarters.

Because they wanted to make their fried chicken tastes like KFC, many people tried to get the secret recipe by making guesses and formulas of their own. But no one did. That’s why until now It’s a “secret”. And I don’t believe anyone will ever have the exact Kentucky Fried Chicken recipe.

Here are KFC recipes that you can make as a guide in cooking your own fried chicken. Here is how most people fix their homemade version of a Kentucky Fried Chicken recipes.

“Original Kentucky Fried Chicken” Coating

Ingredients:
– 2 envelopes tomato soup mix, preferably Lipton cup-o-soup brand
– 2 envelopes Italian dressing mix
– 1 tablespoon paprika
– 2 teaspoons dried chervil (optional, but makes a huge difference in taste)
– 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
– 1 teaspoon instant chicken bouillon powder
– 1 teaspoon dried parsley
– 1 teaspoon tarragon
– 1/2 teaspoon sage
– 1/4 teaspoon pepper
– 3 cups pancake mix

Instructions:
Step 1. Blend all of the Kentucky Fried Chicken ingredients for the coating in a blender.

Step 2. The fried chicken coating is enough for a whole chicken, cut up. Soak the chicken pieces in buttermilk for at least one hour in the refrigerator. Remove chicken from buttermilk and roll in the chicken coating mixture above. Let chicken sit at room temperature while waiting for the oil to get hot.

Step 3. Deep fry if possible for the most authentic copy of the original Kentucky Fried Chicken recipe. If that is not possible, use a cast iron skillet. Do not crowd the chicken when placing into the skillet. Use lard or shortening if you really want that original Kentucky Fried Chicken taste.

Step 4. Brown the chicken in the skillet on high heat. Then turn down the heat and cover the pan. Cook until the fried chicken is done, about 30 minutes. During the last 5 or 10 minutes, uncover the pan and turn up the heat. This will crisp up the fried chicken. Be careful not to burn the chicken during this last step.

Step 5. Remove the fried chicken and drain on paper towels. Serve while still hot.

KFC Gravy
– 1 1/2 tablespoons shortening, melted
– 3 tablespoons of Original Breading Flour**
– 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
– 1 can Campbell’s Condensed Chicken Stock
– 1 can water

Instructions
Step 1. First we are going to make a roux (a cooked mixture of wheat flour and fat, traditionally clarified butter) with the melted shortening and 1 1/2 tablespoon of breading flour. Cook this over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until the roux browns in color to resemble a nice milk chocolate color. Once the mixture turns brown remove it from the heat and add the remaining flour and slowly add the liquid(s) to incorporate it so no lumps.

Step 2. Bring the mixture to a boil for 2 minutes, reduce the heat and allow the mixture to thicken which would take about 3 to 5 minutes.

**That is just the flour that you use to bread the chicken with.
