KFC Secret Recipe Revealed!

The Secret of KFC's "Eleven Herbs and Spices" have been leaked!

Behold :

"Finger Lickin' Good..."




Who needs WikiLeaks,bah.

We've got the KFC Corporation making a BIG boo boo. The Colonel's secret recipe was only the second biggest food secret on the planet, behind Coca Cola's secret formula, until this happened :


After the jump...






"The Colonel's secret flavor recipe of 11 herbs and spices that creates the famous "finger lickin' good" chicken remains a trade secret.[14][15] Portions of the secret spice mix are made at different locations in the United States, and the only complete, handwritten copy of the recipe is kept in a vault in corporate headquarters.[16]
On September 9, 2008, the one complete copy was temporarily moved to an undisclosed location under extremely tight security while KFC revamped the security at its headquarters. Before the move, KFC disclosed[17] that the recipe, which includes exact amounts of each component, is written in pencil on a single sheet of notebook paper and signed by Sanders.[18] It was locked in a filing cabinet with two separate combination locks. The cabinet also included vials of each of the 11 herbs and spices used. Only two unnamed executives had access to the recipe at any one time.[19] One of the two executives said that no one had come close to guessing the contents of the secret recipe, and added that the actual recipe would include some surprises. On February 9, 2009, the secret recipe returned to KFC's Louisville headquarters in a more secure, computerized vault[20] guarded by motion detectors and security cameras. Reportedly, the paper has yellowed and the handwriting is now faint.[18]"

So, the question is, is the above recipe accurate?


I have not tried the blend listed above to test it, but there seems to be some discrepancy in the amounts of the ingredients and the techniques involved.
Another web site claims this :


"KFC is famous world over for the distinct taste of the delicacies served by them. This taste was developed nearly half a century ago by Colonel Harland Sanders. This recipe is a well guarded secret for all restaurants of KFC located all over the world. The magic behind this secret recipe is the mix of eleven herbs mixed together to arrive at the distinct taste developed by the KFC. Till the present day this recipe is a closely guarded secret. We have tried out with the combination of various herbs and at last able to locate the combination of the herbs. For your benefit we are giving below the names and quantity of each herb required for coming to the magic taste developed by KFC: 

To prepare this secret recipe you will require following
ingredients:
1 tablespoon of dried rosemary leaves
1 tablespoon of dried wild marjoram leaves
1 tablespoon of powdered Kitchen sage leaves
1 teaspoon of dried and powdered ginger
1 teaspoon of dried sweet marjoram leaves
1 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of dry and minced parsley leaves
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 tablespoon of paprika powder
2 tablespoons garlic salt
2 tablespoons onion salt
2 tablespoons powdered chicken soup cubes
1 package of tomato soup mix

Method

Actually there are 11 spices in the KFC combination, but the additional ingredients were used to derive that special flavor of KFC. After you arrange all of these ingredients, place them in a blender and select the incher setting found on the panel, grind it for 3 to 4 minutes to get the desired texture. After it is done you may store it in an airtight container so it will not lose its effectiveness.

The KFC Chicken is always prepared with the help of this secret spice and all purpose flour and that too in a specific proportion. We should reveal the proportion of the spice for you here. To get the perfect blend and taste use about 30 grams of spice mixture to 100 grams of all purpose flour.
This flour mix is used together with egg whites to coat the chicken pieces and pressure fried to create the famous KFC chickens."



Above image and recipe courtesy : KFC Chicken Recipe

The above description has fourteen (14) different ingredients as opposed to the top one which has eleven (11).

So, who is right??


Well, acording to this guy, Ron Douglas, the author of the book America's Most Wanted Recipes, he is the self professed "copycat" cook who has researched many beloved favorite recipes from numerous "chain restaurants" throughout the "Good 'Ole U.S. of A.". Through years of trial and error with his stalwart crew, with often lethal results, he has created this version of KFC's signature eleven herbs and spices :


  • 1 teaspoon Oregano, dried
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Sage, dried
  • 1 teaspoon Basil, dried
  • 1 teaspoon Marjoram, dried
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper, ground
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Onion Salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Accent Flavor Enhancer (it's basically MSG, y'all)
Taken from America's Most Wanted Recipes, by Ron Douglas via : Recipe Secrets


Mister Douglas should certainly be praised for his dilligence and tenacity in spending six years of his life in the development of his "copycat" flavor.


However, which is the real one?

Differences in ingredients aside, the techniques of the "copycat" recipes also vary considerably. I know for a fact that KFC uses a pressure cooker to do their signature fried chicken in a very short amount of time in order to insure the ideal crispiness and perfection of the product. However, this can be very dangerous and should not be attempted at home, especially in your ridiculously expensive New York City studio apartment. Now, if you are true risk taker, I'd love to see a video of someone attempting the hot fat and pressure cooker method with a good non-life threatening failure, but that's up to braver folk than I. A simple FryDaddy® or a dutch oven with hot oil will be much safer, and without all of the insurance issues.

In addition, KFC uses only Soybean Oil for their pressure cooker fryers, and, apparently, this is a very important ingredient. Soybean Oil has a very high flash point (450°F/232°C) which prevents it from breaking down easily and can be reused, especially if using a pressure cooker. Soybean Oil is also very low in saturated fats (16g), the bad stuff, and very high in polyunsaturated fats (58g), the good stuff. All of this makes it ideal for deep frying and baking (hmmm, how about some deep fried baked goods??? Something tells me that the Scottish have the market cornered on that concept. See National Geographic).


The batter coating is also under some contreversy, as well. Is it buttermilk based, plain milk, creme, are there leavening agents involved, whole eggs, or a combination of eggs and egg whites?


All of this remains to be solved.


So, let me know what you find, out and feel free to use your loved ones as "test subjects" in your experimentation.

  1. Actually, As a retired chef I can tell you that all the recipes in the world will never yield the same fried chicken as you get at KFC. The most significant part of this equation is the pressure fryer. Flour contains proteins that under pressure in contact with oil change their structure. This change will not occur in a fryer or oven. The spices are also forced into the flour and change as well.

    1. I don't buy the story about the pressure fryer. In some of the KFC TV ads -long time ago- the colonel said that he was cooking chicken just like his mom did and I doubt she had that type of fryer back in 1910.

    2. Haha, and you honestly believe an ad as a believable source? The retired chef is telling the truth, and it would take you 10 seconds to search on google to see if pressure cooking changes chemical structures versus believing a TV ad from 50+ years ago.

    4. Hold on now...I worked at KFC from 1986-1988. We had normal pressure cooker pots that you can buy from a store. We upgraded to automatic pressure cookers about a year later.

    5. Ha ha when the colonel started out he used a frying pan ,then when they came out with the pressure cooker he love the ideal of cutting the cooking time down, the spice's are a secret, but not why he switch to a pressure cooker,even the Documentary they made of his life will tell you that one ,find something else to argue about not stupid s###

      You believe commercials when they say "This is not a paid actor" too?

      You think when you watch that slow motion video of milk being poured so beautifully in a commercial that it's actually milk and not glue?

  2. The publication of KFC’s long-lost secret recipes is another smoke screen to confuse the public. What WE want to know is why KFC won’t change its secret recipe for rainforest destruction. How would the Colonel feel now if he knew what KFC was doing? He famously said the people who bought his company "prostituted every goddamn thing I had….I had the greatest gravy in the world and … they dragged it out and extended it and watered it down… I'm so goddamn mad!” It’s time we all got ‘goddamn mad’ that the Sumatran tigers homes are being destroyed to make KFC secret recipe packaging the trash. With this cookbook KFC is distracting attention away from their real secret recipe for rainforest destruction which you can read here - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150886778828300&set=a.10150886778668300.421778.7297163299&type=1&theater and you can make your voice heard here too! www.kfc-secretrecipe.com

      If you want to preserve the species, try encouraging people to do something positively constructive.

      My point? you'll never win people over by attacking them or the things they care about.

    10. Also, when her sold his recipe to the company, there was a condition that they had to uphold. And it's HOW the chickens are raised. They MUST be corn-fed, and be able to roam around breathing good air. And the chicken the company gives us is just one giant science experiment.
      He also ended up going to one of these places, took a bite and spat out the chicken, stating that it tasted like dirt. The chain got so pissed off that they sued him, but when the Col. showed the contract they made, the food chain lost and the Col, won. Honestly, if he saw how far they went in destroying his recipe, he's be $*#%ing in his grave. A part of me wished that after he won the lawsuit that the Col. should have sued them for breaking their contract and to return the recipe to him. And hell, if he did, maybe we would all have had some ORIGINAL KFC that isn't chemically engineered...

  4. I believe he made a special cooker at the time he was experimenting with it. But i could be wrong about that one but what i am right about is after he bought some of the chicken he worked so hard to create and said it tasted like trash they tried to sue him for saying there chicken was bad. No I ask you who would know if the chicken didnt taste right??? I am still amazed at peoples stupidity

  5. First off, MSG was not around for commercial cooking back when The Colonel set up shop though it is believes the chicken was put in a basic salt brine sor a short time before cooking as his actual home preperation consisted of a buttermilk bath, and that was too expensive for commercial franchise costs. Follow Todd Wilbur of Top Secret Recipes on CMT network and he came dang close as well as with a few different ingrediants (straight from The Colnoels suppliers). It wasn't perfect but dang near close....and Anonymous, let's see how you feel about tigers when they cut down the forest they live in, you know, the forrests that provide the oxygen you breath so you can eat your freakin' chiken? Idiot.

  6. Half of the earths oxygen is produced by single celled organisms. Factor in algea, every other plant on the planet, and the rain forest covers only a miniscule fraction of a third of the planet, you have a colossally inconsequential argument. it would take millennia to deplete earth of free oxygen.

      they also use CO2...

      please consider that we have only really been burning a large amount of CO2 and CO since around the early 1800's and a decent sized volcanic erruption could do far worse than what we have done so far... also, we are reducing our CO and CO2 emissions gradually

      If you want a greener earth then here's an idea, make GREEN cost LESS... all the GREEN fuel cars cost on average 2x as much as a polluting car?

      How about you aid in rainflorest replantation? or are your fingers tied to your keyboard? in fact... by complaining and irritating others you are in fact polluting the world with wasted CO2 and Methane emissions and also bringing a negativity towards yourself and your goals

      But I'd not know how a KFC o/o would know what was in a pre-mixed pack of seasonings he gets.

  32. Outside of feeding ourselves and finding some modicum of pleasure in life, doing to other people or creatures what you do not want done to yourself makes you a hypocrite . As being creatures that have evolved to a higher consciousness it is our responsibility to understand how precious a miraculous all life on the planet is, animals are like children and we are the responsible caretaking adults to not acknowledge that is to not acknowledge being a human. Chicken taste good but chickens are not going extinct, tigers and many other animals are, we do not have the right to wipe out natural history from future generations

  46. all the kfc franchises in my neck of the woods [north Bergen county, nj] currently sell nasty, fatty chicken [with a lot of nasty fat within the skin especially] which not only tastes pretty 'fowl' [pun intended] but actually makes me gag... when I first tasted the kfc back in 1980 when I've first arrived in the u.s. with my folks from a [then] commie run country, I thought it was the best thing I've ever tasted... ate everything including the bones since back then the quality of the chicken seemed to be of much higher quality without nasty fat deposits and the bones were very brittle/crunchy thus easy to actually eat... for the next few years i'd never leave anything but the largest bone or two whenever i'd consume kfc chicken... then, for the next several years I haven't had any kfc food at all, did my us navy stint, then some living, etc... about 20 years later - circa 2006 - I finally remembered the kfc chicken and stopped by a local franchise's drive-through driving back from a pub one evening... yechhh... tasted still quite good but I spat out at least half of my order after biting unexpectedly into the skin which was full of nasty tasting, gross fat in many places... gagged a few times... tried it again 4-5 times buying at a few different local franchises and one other in nyc, hoping that it was just a bad batch or a franchise with subpar quality chicken... nope, all the chicken from all franchises now seems to ba of this crappy, fatty quality... will never again buy from kfc regrettably... regrettably because I still love the taste of their chicken and that crispy [when i'd find the rare piece sans the yellow fat] texture... was hoping that i'd find a recipe which would approximate closely the kfc taste experience instead i'm reading stupid troll posts about Sumatran friggin' tigers and juvenile troll insults... I wonder if it would be possible to just purchase a ready to use, premixed spices [that way they still remain a secret recipe] from kfc along with a preparation suggestion... that way I could use premium lean chicken of high quality AND have that taste as well... they could significantly add to their [kfc] profit f they'd offer the option to purchase just the secret ingredients spices...

    Obviously sugar,onion,garlic,pepper,salt are in it.
    Basil and oregano sounds to Italian for southern cooking but sage and paprika fit right in there. Rosemary I usually associate with baked chicken....it's possible.....I'm not sure. On second thought I take it back....ginger is possible.

  58. You guys need to seriously think about some of this...
    I'm really not one of those environmental wackos or people who believe the global warming hoax.
    But the people on here complaining about killing the tigers have a point.
    I was actually a cook that operated out of the main distribution centers for KFC in South Africa. In many third world countries there are not as many controls, so it was not actually convenient or even possible to make the "secret" recipe in four different places and mix them all together. So what happened was is that only a few select people in KFC Africa were trusted with the secret. But without any controls the secret recipe eventually just gets handed around and before you know it, a lot of people know.
    The thing is... that the most of the actual herbs and spices don't matter. Nor does the pressure cooker, though that's important... the thing is the meat itself!
    If you look around on the Internet you'll see that Colonel Sanders actually bought (some say ripped off) the recipe from a South African woman for $1200 or so in the 1930s. This woman is known or to have been rumored to have lived and grown up in the village close to where the distribution center is. She later migrated to America SO, the magic ingredient? You guessed it..... tiger.
    Yes, of course there is chicken, but each year KFC imports tons of tiger meat and the pressure cookers cook it together with the chicken meat. This is then what is sent to the local stores to be reprocessed and heated.
    I know it sounds crazy, but you are actually eating tiger! And that's why a lot of the people on this board really do have a point. If you don't believe me, just search for "coronel sanders africa" and you'll see.

  59. I worked at KFC about 30 years ago , they do have special cookers however , I do remember that the pressure cooker had broke for almost a whole summer we used deep fryer similar to the fryer at we did for french fries and the flavor of the chicken must not have been altered much because the customers never knew or complained. We changed to cooking times of course. I ate the chicken many times in the fryer and to me it tasted the same.

  82. WTF I actually like KFC and I am alarmed at some of the attitudes on this blog...I thought it was supposed to be about KFC food? Or did I miss something? BUT that said I'll also say that all you people who advocate the extinction of animals or the destruction of the earth then LISTEN UP...The dinosaurs had millions of years to evolve, how long has the human race? Near on 70,000 years according to the experts who work to understand the sciences of LIFE and THEY the EXPERTS also say that WE are doing more damage with CO2 than the dino's did and THAT'S FACT! I can't believe what some of you are saying about life and like I said I LOVE KFC TOO but KILLING the earth for any reason WILL KILL US ALL...the earth relies so much on BIODIVERSITY and without it we are all EXTINCT including plants, animals...the earth uses carbon for the core..as things break down into the ground it eventually makes it's way to the furnace and it's a never ending cycle BUT we are overloading the earth with CO2 which is a very toxic gas..yes volcano's do expel CO2 but the earth has evolved to control it's impact upon the eco system and any that is too over powering then the earth has dealt with it in a more extreme way with such things as ICE AGES but you dumb fucks wouldn't have a clue about that now would ya because you never listened up during history lessons at school....damn if your attitudes are anything to go by then WE ARE truly fucked because it will be the power brokers attitude that will determine the fate of humanity and the power brokers are very clever at making YOU ignore what you are doing and so I can't wait for the day to come for your attitudes to change or WE become extinct because LIFE needs IT! If you don't like what I've written then you should check yourself....In regard to take away foods KFC is one of my faves and I DON'T BELIEVE they use tigers in it's making and if ever I findout truly that they DID? Then my KFC eating day's are over...in regard the recipe and taste of KFC? It has changed so much over the years and like I read a comment here that stated "Col Sanders would be turning over in his grave well he would and so would the original owner and inventor of the recipe which we WILL NEVER know what the original recipe was nor the one that they use now not anytime soon anyways so wake the fuck up people!

  85. Colonel Sanders used ground vanilla powder in his time. Now the company uses vanilla infused dextrose, Powdered vanilla sugar) and adds some garlic powder as a filler, (not in Sander's original recipe). Ginger was also reported in the original recipe. Throw out the ground fennel in above recipe and substitute ginger if you want truly original recipe. You have to experiment with amounts, but basically that's the secret along with pressure frying.

  86. I have been fooling around with Colonel Sander's original Recipe seasoning mix for several years. The below recipe is the closest I've come to it. You have to remember that no one knows if Colonel Sanders counted black and white pepper as one spice or two, if indeed he used white pepper at all. (KFC did indeed use both white and black pepper in their spice packs by 1976. Therefore we can never be sure of 11 herbs and spices.

    Colonel Sander's Original Recipe Formula?

    1. 1 and 1/2 tsp black pepper
    2. 3/4 tsp sage (rubbed)
    3. 1/2 tsp coriander
    4. 3/8 tsp ginger
    5. 1/2 tsp fennel seed ground
    6. 1/4 tsp tsp bay leaf ground
    7. 3/8 tsp nutmeg
    8. 1/4 tsp red pepper ground
    9. 1/4 tsp savory
    10.1/8 tsp cloves
    11.1/4 tsp ground vanilla bean

    Other
    1 tsp MSG
    1 cup self rising flour
    3 tsp salt

    Chicken should be dipped in an egg/milk wash, then dipped in the seasoned flour mix and pressured fried at $375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Chicken should be allowed to drain for 20 minutes before serving.

  87. I work at KFC as a chef, it is possible to cook mini fillets without a pressure fryer. When we cook minis in the 8 head fryers is dos not pressurise, however everything else is cooked under pressure except zingers and hot wings. Strictly speaking you could cook mini fillets at home with a conventional deep fat fryer at 360f or 180c for 4:00mins with vegetable oil however it's recommended to use soybean oil. The oil at our store contains both soybean and rapeseed oil.

    2. Rapeseed oil is banned in many country's for use in food
      because its corrosive and used as acid in car battery's

      Created thru waste in pot a potties waste and sewers in asia concentrated at the waste treatment plants
      Part of it outside the organic plant used is a substance nicked named "sewage mud,"
      which is just a nice way of saying that it was created from human waste. By extracting the protein and lipids from this "mud," Ikeda was able to take these components, add a reaction enhancer to them, and process the slurry into a meat-like product then purified and sold as a additive for the oil as a stabilizer

      Rapeseed is not human waste but the additives to make it last longer are and end up as part of your food

  88. Um....a few words for all you guys. 1) Lighten up on the arguments! Good god!

  102. I worked at KFC and can attest that they only used a bag of spices brought into the store and we mixed it in 10 lbs of flour. No eggs, no buttermilk or anything else.
    There was enough flavor in the dressing to just add it to a pot of water in the morning and let it set in the warmer to make gravy. Hence we peeled the dressing of left over chicken or just used the dropping from the pan we placed the chicken on.
    So in all fairness we never new what the spices were but I do know that there are a lot of recipes out there that do not have even the basics of KFC

WT hell is wrong with people talking like it is OK to kill the tigers for a piece of fatty chicken to stuff in your face and that makes your rear end huge and can give you health problems.....It is one thing to like to eat something ..but it should not at the expense of harming another living thing. Meat is Ok to eat..once in awhile ! Not in masses ! We eat way too much meat anyway and don't even need that large amount of protein to be healthy ! I am not vegan ..I do eat meat sparingly on occasion....not with gluttony. Have respect for another living being on this earth and its life ! Animals do feel things...pain for one ! These people who laugh and makes jokes about killing tigers so they can eat a piece of Chicken need to be the ones being eaten and slaughtered......
    if only things were reverse on this world I think human being would learn a scary but valuable lesson and change ! Animals are not born into the world so you can stuff you fat face ! They are here like all of us to live their lives out as it should be ! Free and safe from greedy humans !

  109. I surprisingly agree with most of the people on here. Firstly, I understand the need to protect the animals. As my Biology teacher once told me, 'Humans are the worst thing to happen to this planet. We created far more destruction in our 500 000 years than anything before us'. But I also really like KFC. Someone on here said that we should eat protein but not at the expense of living things. That statement alone contradicts itself. We need protein... maybe not in the quantities that we are consuming it now, but it is still needed. As for the guys that brought up the tigers and the rain forests... I admire the fight, but there is a time and a place for everything. This was meant to merely discuss the possible ingredients that could be used to replicate a food product. Would you appreciate these same people going onto a Conservationists forum and bombarding it with 'Eat more chicken' comments? Just saying!
