🍗 KFC Original Secret Chicken Recipe 🍗
- 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon garlic salt
- 1 tablespoon onion salt
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground white pepper
- Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Prepare the Chicken: Begin by rinsing the chicken pieces and patting them dry with paper towels.
  2. Marinate: In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and egg. Submerge the chicken pieces in the mixture and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  3. Mix the Dry Ingredients: Combine the flour, paprika, onion salt, celery salt, black pepper, dried mustard, ginger, white pepper, garlic powder, thyme, basil, and oregano in a large bowl.
  4. Coat the Chicken: Remove chicken from the buttermilk mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Dredge each piece in the flour mixture until well coated.
  5. Fry the Chicken: Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 350°F (175°C). Fry the chicken pieces in batches, without overcrowding, until golden brown and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. Use a thermometer to ensure the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  6. Drain: Transfer the fried chicken to a wire rack over a baking sheet to drain excess oil.


  • For best results, let the chicken marinate in the buttermilk mixture overnight.
  • Adjust the heat as needed to maintain oil temperature for consistent frying.
  • Use a cooking thermometer to ensure perfect doneness without overcooking.
