My reverse-engineered recipe for KFC's 'Extra Crispy' chicken yields enough seasoning for 3 batches fried chicken (for the single recipe version, see KFC Extra Crispy Chicken (Copycat)). This recipe requires 1 1/2 cups of Bulk KFC Original Recipe Seasoning (Copycat). Mix 1/2 cup of this blend with 3 3/4 cups self-rising flour and 1/4 cup cornstarch for frying one fryer chicken or up to 16 drumsticks. Follow Kentucky Fried Chicken Original Recipe for complete brining, preparation and frying instructions.
