KFC’s‘original' fried chicken recipe revealed

Colonel Sanders' nephew casually revealed to a reporter a recipe that had been passed down in a family scrapbook.

Could this be KFC's closely guarded secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices? The nephew, Joe Ledington, said it is. 

He claims his job as a kid was to mix this same recipe in large batches.

Here are the ingredients you'll need:

•Chicken parts of your choice

•Celery salt

•Dried Mustard

•White pepper

•Garlic salt


•Ground ginger





•Black pepper

Here are the instructions:

Prepare oil in a cast-iron pot to fry. In a bowl, mix 2 cups of flour, 1/3 tbsp of salt, 1 tbsp of black pepper, 1/2 tbsp of thyme, 1/2 tbsp of basil, 1/3 tbsp of oregano, 1 tbsp celery salt, 1 tbsp of dried mustard, 4 tbsp of paprika, 1 tbsp of garlic salt, 1 tbsp of ground ginger,  and 1 tbsp of white pepper.

In a separate bowl, add milk and an egg and beat. Mix your chicken into the bowl, and then coat the chicken in the flour & spice mix.

Finally, fry the chicken in the pot for 10 to 15 minutes. Let it cool and then serve.
