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.”
