This recipe is from Chicago Tribune which reporter Joe Gray got from Joe Ledington, nephew of Colonel Harland Sanders. It was published on August 19, 2016. Note: The buttermilk-egg bath was an idea the testers borrowed from others and not from the purported original recipe. It is advisable to add some MSG to the mix for an authentic taste. Frying oil that is too hot will cause the breading to brown too much, overpowering the taste of the herbs and spices.
