  1. It’s a recipe. You don’t really have to steal it. You just look for it online. There really is nothing special about the KFC special recipe.
    The trick though, is that they use pressure fryers to cook their chicken. This means that they can maintain a cooking environment that you really can’t reliably or safely achieve in a home kitchen.
    Still, this isn’t a matter of people not being able to replicate the secret recipe. It’s an issue of the recipe itself being designed to fit a high-volume industrial process. You can actually make fried chicken a lot more easily, and in my opinion, a lot better, using more common kitchen tools.
    Even if you were going to open your own fried chicken restaurant, you’d probably do better to come up with your own unique recipe. The idea of a secret recipe is mostly myth. It’s really not too difficult to reverse engineer a recipe quite accurately if you know what you’re doing.
    The KFC secret recipe is just a marketing gimmick. There is certainly value to that ‘secret’ recipe. But that value is minimal in comparison to the value of a brand that has built loyalty over many many years.
