Get ready to have your heart broken. What you buy out of your local KFC joint is not the actual recipe!

The whole thing about “11 hearbs and spices” and “secrets” are a marketing campaign. While I am going to tell you the current process KFC uses to make their chickens. Ingredients like chicken and flour and locally sourced. Frozen is a strict no-no.

Inside the kitchen we have a little bathtub for the breading. The mix for herbs and spices also contains powdered egg.

A brine bath is kept beside the breading where the most important ingredient is MSG. This ingredient is magic and brings the iconic KFC taste with the umami flavour. The magic number is 7 for everything. For dipping, breading and removing extra.

Now the fryer is unique and made for kfc only. It is a pressure fryer and chicken is fried for 15 minutes.

Although herbs and spices are still not well known, I can reveal the pepper that goes into it is sourced from India. A little province from Kerala to be precise.
