The original KFC grilled chicken recipe, just like the Kentucky fried spice mix is a closely guarded secret and I'm not claiming to have seen, copied or stolen the original. I just thought I'd give it a go and I'll let you be the judge of how close I've got.
The herb and spice mix that I've worked together inevitably will have a different flavor because we're using fresh ingredients and won't be adding stabilizers or flavor enhancers such as MSG.
I like to use boned chicken thighs because I think that they are the most succulent, they also go well in a bun with a salad and dollop of ketchup!
So what we've got (whether it hits the KFC taste or not) is a great spice mix for grilled chicken. Try it out, see what you think, I'd really like to know if you think we've come close or better! To make a comment, please use my page info feedback form below.
