This is a much healthier version than the KFC clone by Todd Wilbur, and still TASTES GREAT! I changed ingredients to make it more approachable on a low cal, low carb or diabetic diet. It's perfect for me! I thought I had posted this before but had not, so I am really happy I saved it! I don't want to lose this recipe!!! Cook time is time to chill, so prep is really quick. Make it early in the day and it will be ready for afternoon picnics and barbecues.

This cannot be healthier if you are using Splenda--almost the same as aspertame, which is a deadly non-food chemical.

As for the "fat-free" mayonnaise--the fat comes from the egg (which is still the perfect food) and the oil. There is nothing as unhealthy as the new "fat-free" foods. They have deadly additives in them and just for the record, you MUST have fat for your body to function properly. Just like your car, if it is not "lubricated", your organs, brain and arteries will dry up.

Eat the fat and especially stay away from "fat-free" products. They are much more deadly than fat.

Yum! I used regular sugar and scaled the recipe down.I used soy milk with lemon juice instead of buttermilk. I also made my own coleslaw mix using green cabbage, celery, carrots and radishes. Much enjoyed! Made for Sun and Spice event.

I scaled back for 4 serves and 3 of us polished off the lot with our dinner. I used natVia instead of Splenda and only used 2 teaspoons and found it to be sweet enough for us, I did use a real egg mayonnaise as I don't use fat free as I find that upsets my blood sugars more than full fat does and I skipped step 1 as we like our coleslaw chunky and as said we all thoroughly enjoyed, thank you Sue Lau, made for Everyday A Holiday tag game.
