    This is the closest I've come to the original KFC recipe. They deep-fry theirs in a pressure fryer, and I pan fry this in only 4 tablespoons oil, so I think mine is much healthier.

    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Sift flour and add to it all the seasonings, after having ground them fine with a mortar and pestle (a blender works well, too) Place coating in a plastic bag. Dip each piece of chicken in the beaten egg, then place in the bag and shake, making sure each piece is well coated.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in large skillet and brown chicken slowly, uncovered, until all sides are nicely browned. Cover the pan and continue to fry slowly, turning pieces occasionally for about 50 minutes, until juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
    3. 3
      Drain on paper towels.

      Unfortunately, this was not a winner for us. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts, because if DH and I go to KFC, that is what we order. Because of this, I was really only judging this on the coating and seasoning. I had to leave out the chives, because I didn't have any. I knew that I would have to adjust the cooking time significantly because of the cut of chicken I was using, so that wasn't a problem. My issues were with the seasoning and coating. Maybe if I didn't have the KFC flavor in mind when I was making this, I would've been happier with it. Even with all the herbs and spices in the coating, this chicken was very bland. It smelled great when cooking, but didn't taste like it had seasoning at all. The coating was also nothing like KFC's. I'm wondering if KFC's actual coating is in a batter form, rather than an egg-to-flour dip. I think this would've been vastly improved with the addition of brined chicken and some more salt or some Spike seasoning in the coating. It's not that this was inedible or anything -- I'll be using this in some chicken sandwiches. I was just really hoping that this would recreate that KFC flavor, but it completely missed the mark in that arena, and that is what I am rating. So sorry that I couldn't rate this better, but thanks for posting. Made for PAC Spring 2014
