    Back in the 80's, I had access to an unauthorized kilo of actual KFC seasoning, stolen by a manager who quit after I quit. Used it on everything, plant or animal. This is as close to the real deal as I've found since then and it is great with fried, baked, broiled and grilled. Thanks MZMARGO. - 12/15/13

    Kept the salt out of the spices. Mixed 1/2 spices into 2 tbls of quinoa flour. Then dipped my skinless/boneless chicken breast into skim milk & rolled in plain spice mixture. Then redipped it in egg whites & finally rolled it in spiced quinoa flour. Baked at 350 for 35 min. SO GOOD!!! - 12/6/13

  • Though it isn't a herb or spice, one ingredient is missing. The ingredient is "Butter Milk" and the chicken is dredged in the Butter Milk before going into the spice and herb mix. I have participated in the making of KFC Chicken quite a few years ago and this is what they used. - 5/25/15

  • There is a step missing if you want A KFC clone. Dredge in flour mixture, egg/milk mixture, and dredge in flour mixture again. Needs more salt. Tellacherry pepper should be used. - 2/13/15
