Sorry, the second Mace should be Mustard.

I was tired last night.

Thanks for the catch!

All I know is it has wheat in the flour.

If it's all Wheat Flour, Unbleached Wheat flour,
Wheat flour with All-Purpose flour, Wheat flour with
Cake flour? We don't know yet. But we do know
there is wheat in the flour.

Pepper's pepper whether it's black, white, whole, or cracked. It's still pepper and only one ingredient, not two regardless of color.

If someone, anyone! knows a good recipe that duplicates KFC,
please let me know... After four and half years of research...
I'm open for ideas... I'm old, I'm tired and I'm hungry for KFC! lol.

Here is the latest ingredients but noone has been
able to put them together to make a working KFC recipe so far
but we are getting close!!!!

1) Black Pepper (known fact)
2) White Pepper (it does count! lol) (from 99-X)
3) Garlic (from KFC)
4) Sage (from 99-X)
5) Coriander (from 99-X)
6) Mace (MickeyD's famous recipe that duplicated KFC with 99-X!)
7) Celery Seed (see KFC UK site)
8) Dry Mustard (see KFC UK site)

So that leaves only three, only three ingredients to go...
I thought I would never see this day...

Hope this helps...

Possibilities to the KFC Recipe

Almost forgot to mention...

Here are the possibilities that could make up
9, 10 and 11 ingredients...

9) Cayenne or Chili Powder (because KFC has a bite to it, I believe
it's Cayenne but not much of it)

10) Allspice, Nutmeg or Cloves - something sweet is definitely in there,
just a hint)

11) I don't know of any for the LAST INGREDIENT...

Hope this helps... wish someone gave me these notes years ago!!!!

True, but different varieties of pepper have different flavor profiles. If you don't believe me, purchace multi-colored blends of whole peppercorns, crush them yourself, and taste them. I notice the difference, but my DW doesn't. The only thing she gets from peppercorns is heat.

not sure if anyone read the link I hooked up to on this subject but there is a question about whether black pepper or white pepper have any difference at all. seems depending on who you are there is or isn't a difference. I wonder if I was to grind black pepper down to the powdery form that white pepper is, and tasted it blind folded, I'd know which was which?

I used the following tonight, just to see if I could begin to figure out the taste profile. Included in my seasoned, 1 cup of all-purpose flour were:
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. granulated garlic powder
1/8 tsp. granulated onion powder
1/2 tsp, ground sage
1/2 tsp. ground thyme
1 scant shake of mace powder.

Coat the skinned chicken in egg wash, then flour, then egg-wash, and again in the flour. Bump the chicken to remove excess flour and fried in 1 inch of hot oil until lightly browned. Placed on a line cookie sheet and into a 350' oven for 35 minutes. Chicken was great and very juicy with a fine flavor. But it definitely didn't taste anything like KFC. The mace, even though I used just a hint, was to dominant, and way to sweet. I don't think it's used in the original recipe for KFC. But that of course, is my opinion.

Next time, I will omit the salt and mace, and add chicken soup base to the mixture. It should come out closer.
