KFC Chicken

About this recipe: It's not an exact match for KFC but its fairly close and tastes great. You can also use the mixed spices on pork, etc. I am still working on perfecting it, messing around with different spices and the amounts but its a good place to start

Looove this recipe! It's so tasty and does actually taste almost like KFC chicken. It was instantly a big hit with my family - 30 Jun 2011


It tastes nothing like KFC. It's way too heavy on the the ginger and the Thyme. I think you got the basil, oregano, garlic salt and paprika perfect, as well as the Salt. Next time I'm going eliminate the ginger and thyme completely. I feel kfc chicken has a zesty hints so I'm going to add ground lemongrass and up the mustard and pepper content next time. Good starting recipe. Needs loads of tweaking. - 25 Jan 2014
