I saw this on Twitter. We'll probably never know.

That doesn't seem to be anywhere near enough salt

I read that article, and I believe they said those were all tablespoons, not teaspoons. They also said (and KFC confirmed) there is also MSG in the mix.

I saw a similar article today on Tasting Table about the original KFC seasoning that also mentioned MSG.

I never thought much of their fried chicken, but I live down here in rural Mississippi where you can get the best fried chicken if you know what service stations to buy it at. I've been known to drive 60 miles round trip to get fried chicken or gizzards when I feel the need. They make killer biscuits there, too.

The place is owned and run by African American's. They grew up knowing how to do it. They do a hell of a business.

In the end it is the "how" that is more important. Seasoning you can always adjust to your taste.

I'll let you guys in on a little secret. I've never, ever had fried chicken. Not at KFC; not anywhere.

Nothing against it, I'm just not much of a chicken eater I guess. I probably eat chicken no more than twice a year.
