thanks all for your input.

Like others have said, your recipe has a typo in it, not that you could easily obtain potassium anyway.

And I imagine it will be also be a challenge to find potassium chloride.

I'd settle for "quite tasty" or just go to KFC.

What was the Colonel's saying? 37 secret herbs and spices, plus he pressured cooked it before frying? I just love the extra crispy crust...but I don't like the chicken.

KCl is easily obtained in the form of Lo-Salt in most supermarkets: LoSalt reduced sodium salt alternative enriched with potassium for low salt healthy diets
it`s 66% KCl.

Potassium metal, can also be obtained, but it`s VERY Expensive, and also completely useless in a kitchen, in fact it`s not all that usefull in a Lab! :)
I have a jar full here, that hasn`t even been opened in 5+ years :)

It's pressure fried in huge cookers.

I've never heard of LO SALT but I'm sure we must have it here.

It goes by other names as well. I know it is Nu-Salt. At the nursing home, you needed a doctors order to get it, because of its high potassium content.

yeah, that makes sense, as HypER-kallemia is just as dangerous as HyPO.

in fact it`s KCl soln that`s used when you terminate a criminal with "Lethal Injection"

You could also use potassium nitrate, which is easily obtainable and relatively inexpensive. Just don't expect much of a performance from your significant other after dinner!

KNO3 as in 75% of Gunpowder, used as a meat preservative along with the nitrIte KNO2.

I feed that stuff to my Chili peppers when they`re in Flower and producing friut :)
