For years there have been claims galore regarding the recipe for the 11 secret herbs and spices.

There has been plenty of discussions when it comes to the KFC Chicken Recipe. Many of you may have started your working life in the ranks of KFC and remember what the process was.

There are theories galore with some saying the taste is a combination of Salt and MSG. This seems to be likely. We found some comments on a forum from a 1973 employee we’ve included.

KFC Chicken Recipe 11 Herbs and Spices

Many also agree that today’s KFC Chicken Recipe is blander compared to the days of old. This could have something to do with no longer using the above ingredients.

For the record, we are only repeating what is in wide circulation that we found on LA Times Website.

In our travels, we discovered these comments on a website from David R. He says that he was an employee at KFC back in the day. He has some interesting insights into the ingredients and preparation of the chicken. Here’s what he has to say.

“My first real job was at KFC in 1973. First we soaked the chicken pieces overnight in 10 gallon tubs kept in the cooler. We got the marinade mix from our suppliers in a 1 quart bag that contained vegetable oil, perhaps some lemon juice or vinegar, MSG and perhaps a little sugar. Salt can be used instead of MSG. The mix was poured over the chicken and water was added to fill the tub, then it was kept covered overnight before cooking.

The dry mix came in a bag as well and was about 4-5 lbs of cornstarch with the herbs and spices blended in. I am not sure if there was any baking powder or soda included but MSG was. Again, salt can be substituted here. This was mixed with about 10 lbs or so of plain flour in a big tub.

For the dip, we whisked 2 eggs with milk and water in a quart container that set into the work table as the flour tubs did.

The chicken pieces were pulled from the soaking tubs, slightly drained then dumped into the flour tub. After lightly coating each piece, they were dipped then floured again before cooking. Extra crispy was cooked in pressure deep fryers. Aside from that, both types were treated the same before and after cooking.

The cooked chicken was set on racks on cookie sheets and slid into the warming cabinet until serving.”
