The original Kentucky Fried Chicken, which is what KFC was before the colonel died, was battered with 11 herbs and spices and cooked in a pressure cooker. Not fried. Their "extra crispy" version didn't come about for several more years.

I tried to post a comment regarding your suggestions for home made bread crumbs but it wouldn't allow me to, so I'll plop it here. You suggested putting a slice of bread in the microwave for a minute, taking it out then allow it to hang out a while and get stale. Here's what I do. Left over bread from dinner, stale rolls, a half eaten loaf of Italian bread or the heels of any bread will all work. Keep a zip lock in your freezer and add any kind of bread to it as you go. Mix it up, it doesn't matter. After a months worth of squirreling away your unwanted bread, take it out of the freezer, lay it on your counter on a sheet pan and go shopping or take a nap or whatever. The bread does not have to be rock hard. Throw it all in a food processor, crust and all and pulse the heck out of it. Done. Throw the crumbs into the same freezer zip lock and put it back in your freezer. Instant bread crumbs whenever you want. Season them as you go, don't season the whole bag.

I can't rate this because I'm not even going to try it. Ketchup? Hot sauce? I don't think so. Mayo for dipping? Don't think so. Please forgive me if I'm being a tad critical of this chicken recipe but its wrong on every single level. As another posted that he/she suggested you be fired... I wouldn't go that far really. Might I make a helpful suggestion? Please research your recipes more efficiently as this is no where near my idea of KFC. KFC is timeless and delicious and so habit forming. I remember when I was much younger and this is sort of an insult. Please don't get insulted when many true KFC troopers throw some off color reviews, myself being one of them. I can tell the taste of KFC in the dark with my eyes closed, the smell alone makes my mouth water. Sorry

This is something I definitely want to try. Although it certainly isn't going to taste like regular KFC, it does sound like the spicy chicken strips I enjoy there quite often. I was going to try to duplicate them at home so I'll try your recipe & see how close it comes. I'll have to come back later to let you know. Probably should have chosen a different name for your recipe though.

this is stupid all you want is info click here download that

I can't find the KFC recipe! - Where is it? - I keep getting sent to RecipeHub, who want me to download a TOOLBAR!! - You know how many places on the internet want me to download their Toolbars?! - I've got toolbars coming out of my ears! - I've had to delete & disable more toolbars than I've got Salt-Shakers!! - All they do is eat up space on my Hard Drive!! - So why should I bother to remain on THIS website if I'm going to be redirected to websites that want to suck-up space on my Hard-Drive?

This is probably the worst rendition of copy-cat that I have ever seen. Ketchup doesn't even come close to housing all the herbs and spices that are in the KFC recipe. This is so bad I can't even rate it!

KFC has 11 herbs and spices and zero ketchup and hot sauce. How exactly is this recipe like KFC???? I have found a KFC copycat recipe online that has herbs and spices and I would imagine comes a heck of a lot closer in taste and appearance to KFC than this nasty sounding recipe. Just because someone calls it a copycat doesn't make it a copycat. Do a little more homework before sharing these recipes with your readers. Thanks.
