KFC Secret Ingredients:

KFC Secret Recipe
KFC Secret Recipe
  • 2-3 pounds of chicken pieces
  • 1 quart Water
  • 3 tablespoons Salt (used for soaking)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon Accent (MSG)
  • 1 tablespoon salt (for recipe)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Soybean Oil (do not substitute) for frying

How to make KFC Secret:

  • Place chicken into large bowl of salted water and allow to soak for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Beat egg and mix with milk in a bowl. Add and mix flour, Accent, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl.
  • Preheat deep fryer to 350F, or place 3/4 inch oil in a skillet set on medium.
  • Remove and dry chicken using paper towels.
  • Place in flour mixture, place in milk/eggs mixture, and then back into flour mixture. Do this one piece at a time making sure that each piece is covered completely during each step.
  • KFC uses pressure cookers to fry chicken, which I don’t recommend you do at home. If you are using a deep fryer, cook a few pieces at a time for about 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally. Similarly, if pan frying, cook covered, turning occasionally for about 25 – 30 minutes.
  • Make sure you check the middle of the largest chicken piece cooked to check for doneness. (No pink)
  • When done, allow chicken pieces drain on paper towels.
