    Worth a shot. I found one on the internet a long time ago, and while it was good it wasn't close, though it claimed to be the secret recipe. This sounds more credible having been tested several tasters. I'd love to see Chef Ryan tackle this one.

    Neat. I used to have a book of rip-off recipes that supposedly duplicated well known restaurant recipes. I was not impressed with any that I tried. The taste testers give more credence to this recipe.

      Ok, I give up. What is Origino (sic)? We're the spices all ground or some leaf as well? Was this a standard breading procedure of flour, egg wash and flour? Or did the just add egg to the buttermilk and call it a day?

      im thinking of making chicken today. The problem is that I have not had KFC in at least 10 years that I can think of.

      I may have to give this one a shot sometime. There still exists in Shelbyville, KY a restaurant that the Colonel and his wife Claudia opened way back when, and they still serve chicken made with the original recipe. Kind of a really classed up KFC. It's funny; I never consider going to KFC for fast food fried chicken, but I love Claudia Sanders' Dinner House.

        ComfortablyNumb I do now! I have two whole chickens a cut up in the fridge. Decided to Debone the breasts and have a stock pot with all the goodies (bones from 2 chickens) on the stove to use for the gravy on the mashed potatoes. Taters are peeled and holding in cold water and the slaw is made and getting good in the fridge. Tic Toc.

          Huskee ComfortablyNumb Honestly.... I'm kinda a "No Go." This was just weird. Ok here's the set up.

          2 whole chickens busted up
          A 30 minute buttermilk brine as indicated (with a little more milk and egg as I doubled the recipe)
          exact as I can for volume measurement on the spices (doubled)
          canola oil (I like at least 50% lard)
          cast iron
          sheet pans with racks
          mashed taters (Money, no gravy needed because I was lazy)
          MH mayo creamy slaw, amazing as always

          so i pretty much duplicated the recipe and here is my "opinion."
          1. I barely remember what KFC tastes like, then it all came back to me.
          2. All of those spices were costly compared to the chicken I normally make.
          3. The technique in the recipe was substandard compared to a Standard breading procedure.
          4. The "Money chicken" was wtihnthe skin in tact and with Accent/MSG
          5 I fed Sophia a couple of pice of Chiken finger which I fabricated without skin and she was not thrilled.
          6. I then fed Sophia 2 chicken wings (as featured in video) with a sprinkle of accent and "Bingo!"
          7. My personal thoughts are the chicken fat and the MSG can make anything taste good.

          should you try it? Sure, why not? Will I try it again or try and fix this one.... Nope!!

          No harm, no foul my chicken was cooked well and there will be no waste.

            if you look at the history behind the recipe, one of the problems is the measurments. If it is the handwritten one on the web that is supposed to be the original (the one with a ton of whit pepper) it does not distinguish teaspoons from tablespoons.

          Do you have any leftover rub? Curious how a smoke roasted chicken would taste (not fried).

            As I understand it, the "real" secret to KFC Original is that it's pressure fried.

              I was going to make the same comment as Willy . There have been a number of documentaries on that subject, his chicken apparently wasn't as good nor could it be produced in sufficient quantities without the help of a pressure cooker.

              they say the same thing about chick fil-a, but that recipe I posted is pretty darn close to it.

              Willy Troutman i believe so, that's what I told my wife. I always season the crud out of my chicken then coat with seasoned flour, then into seasoned egg wash then panko. If I soak I do it the same a shown above but soak in milk with fresh lemon juice.

              i knew I was not going to use all of that rub but I wanted to stay true to the recipe.

              If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

              Placeholder

              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              Placeholder

              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

              Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              Placeholder

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              Placeholder

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

              The Undisputed Champion!

              Placeholder

              The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              Placeholder

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              Placeholder

              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              Placeholder

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

              Placeholder

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

              Placeholder

              Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
