I know KFC has a bad reputation nowadays but I used to really like it. The last time I was in a KFC it was like no one even cared any longer.

But, if I can make it at home.....


KFC recipe revealed?

KFC was good about 25 years ago before they went full blown multinational corporate and thus using the mass industrialized food preparation and logistical system.


When I want fried chicken I'll go to a local mom & pop place or Popeye's. At least the chicken at Popeye's still tastes like actual food.

It's people isn't it?

KFC is made of people! skyisfalling


KFC is as good as where you find it. Never got a good piece on one of those KFC/Taco Bell locations. But if you are lucky enough to find a busy KFC only restaurant, it tends to still be pretty good.

I am more disappointed in their biscuits, though. They used to be so fluffy and buttery. Now they taste like dry cardboard.

Exactly. But if this recipe is authentic, or close to it, I'll make my own KFC at home, the way it used to be!

I wonder how you get "Extra Crispy"? wink

We used to have a really good KFC in town, but the original owner died about 20 years ago and it ended up closing. (He was the originator of KFC's chicken tenders.) The nearest KFC now is 70 miles away. Recently I was near that KFC and stopped to buy some chicken. I had a craving for some 'original recipe'. It doesn't taste anything like I remembered. I probably won't be going back.

The biscuits are a joke at KFC. I don't even think they qualify to be called "biscuits". Maybe they should be called hardened flour disks?

I second PM's choice of Popeyes's. The only place I will buy fried chicken.

I wish we had one closer to my area, nearest one is in Milwaukee and it's hard to get a group of friends with rifles together to visit that craphole for a weekday chicken fix.

The local choice for fried chicken is Bojangles. Very good and almost always is very fresh. Their biscuits are very good too.

I heard a story that our local KFC was found to have rats getting into the grease pans or some such. I've never liked KFC that I know of. I love Popeyes. We have a Maryland Fried Chicken which USED to be good but the guy who ran it forever sold it and somehow they messed it up. I don't get it. Just follow the practices of the previous owner. Its like someone had an idea to fiddle with the recipe or process a little and it tastes like they aren't buying the best or freshest chicken. It used to be that even their day old chicken that you could buy for cheap was still tasty. This new owner or system they got messed it up.

Popeye's is the choice. And make sure you ask for a few packets of their Cajun Sparkle. You have to ask for it.

Bojangle's beats Popeye's, but not by much. Their biscuits can be a meal all by themselves. Church's comes in a close 3rd. KFC is just...I don't know WTF KFC is now LOL

All of the Bojangles locations in South Florida closed several years ago but I agree that their chicken was quite good.

That looks like it might have been the recipe a loooooong time ago. These days KFC is loaded with MSG--chicken, greens, potatoes, everything is full of it.

why is MSG considered so bad?

i wonder if the people who bash it know what the purpose actually is?

IMO it's not as bad as it's been made out to be, it basically intensifies existing flavors

Some of us are very sensitive to it. Myself, I get exceptionally dizzy and my mental facilities become very clouded. I know this because I used to get that way after eating certain foods and could never figure out why--eventually discovered they all had MSG in them.

Also, there is some data out there from some studies that have been done which show that MSG can cause over-stimulation of neurons leading to cell death. Whether this is true or not... who knows? Most of those studies suffer from confirmation bias.

I just know it makes me feel bad and know a few other people who have their own set of symptoms after being exposed to it.

KFC which is a subsidiary of Yum Brands Inc. calls its recipe "one of the biggest trade secrets in the world." It says that the recipe the reporter saw is not the real thing.

"Many people have made these claims over the years and no one has been accurate this one isn't either," KFC said in a statement.
