I consider chicken most foul, after cooking thousands of these birds I can not stand the smell or taste of chicken

What we know that IS in the KFC Original Recipe

After four years of KFC researching with indepth insights with proof...

The following IS in the KFC Original Recipe:

This is the gospel truth folks...

1) Black Pepper

2) White Pepper

3) Garlic

4) Sage

5) Coriander

6) Mace

and the following:

1) Salt

2) MSG

3) Wheat!!

4) Milk

5) Egg(s)

Wish I had more to list but that is all I can prove right now.

Also, Marion-Kay sells chicken seasoning 99-X for 15.00 on-line...
1 cup of flour
2 1/2 TB 99X
1T Flake Salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground Tellicherry Pepper
1/4 tsp fresh ground Corriander
1/4 tsp Mace.

(thanks to MickeyD's recipe)

Hope this helps...

Ellsworth

Someone has this list as proof for KFC...

Someone has this list as proof for KFC:

White
Black Pepper
Garlic
Sage
Coriander
Mace
RED Chili Pepper

Celery Seed
Mustard Seed


I can confirm all these but the chili pepper (I'm still checking into it.)

It has been a great Summer for KFC lovers!

Hope this helps!

Ellsworth,

The combination of white and black pepper your source mentioned has always bothered me. For the sole purpose of it's use in breading chicken, I asked this forum about it.

I think KFC chicken only uses black pepper, and white pepper, if used, does not qualify as one of the "11 herbs & spices".

I'm getting close to posting what I think is the secret ingredient.

FWIW, I accept PayPal ...

Tom

It may well be part of the KFC list.

Remember the presentation factor. Just for argument sake iIf KFC used the full amount of pepper as black pepper, the chicken might appear over-peppered to many consumers. This would be a turn-off and make people pre-concieve opinions about the taste. Also consider the secrecy factor. By making the real amount pepper disappear visually, you could throw off imitators.

I haven't had KFC for years and years and years.
So what's so good about it?
I'm allergic to preservatives so I won't eat it anyway, so maybe MSG?
Can we get the answer to what you think the secret is TomW?
I think pepper is obvious in some fried chickens out there.
Big pepper flavor.

Updated what has been found...

I worked as an Asst Manager back in the early nineties
and now I long to duplicate KFC so I can cook KFC
in my own kitchen.

Been researching KFC since Mar 2004 and here is the
updated list of what we have as evidence to be:
(and yes, white pepper was one of them, Sorry Tom, lol)

1) Black Pepper
2) White Pepper
3) Garlic
4) Sage
5) Coriander
6) Mace
7) Celery Seed
8) Mace

Just three more to go!!!

After that, then we will work at the amounts for the exact taste.

Alot of people and sweat went into the above ingredients...
Alot of work...

Enjoy!
