KFC original recipe fried chicken is one of my favorite comfort foods, add KFC’s coleslaw and mashed taters with gravy or their potato wedges and I am in heaven 🙂 I found this recipe online and have made it a few times, it honestly tastes just like KFC’s



  • 2  Chicken Breast (skin on)
  • 2  Chicken Thighs (skin on)
  • 2  Chicken Drumsticks (skin on)
  • 2  Chicken Wings (skin on)
  • 2  Quarts Frying Oil
  • 1  Egg White
  • 1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1  TBSP Brown Sugar
  • 1 TBSP Kosher Salt


  • 1  TBSP Paprika
  • 2 tsp of Onion Salt
  • 1 tsp of Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp of Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of Celery Salt
  • 1/2 tsp of Dried Sage
  • 1/2 tsp of Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp of Allspice
  • 1/2 tsp of Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp of Dried Basil
  • 1/2 tsp of Dried Marjoram


  1. Preheat fryer to 350°F. Thoroughly mix together all the spice mix ingredients.
  2. Combine spice mix with flour, brown sugar and salt.
  3. Dip chicken pieces in egg white to lightly coat them, then transfer to flour mixture. Turn a few times and make sure the flour mix is really stuck to the chicken. Repeat with all the chicken pieces.
  4. Let chicken pieces rest for 5 minutes so crust has a chance to dry a bit.
  5. Fry chicken in batches. Breasts and wings should take 12-14 minutes, and legs and thighs will need a few more minutes. Chicken pieces are done when a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165°F.
  6. Let chicken drain on a few paper towels when it comes out of the fryer. Serve hot.
