A homemade version of KFC’s™ original-style fried chicken with 11-ingredient seasoning mix. Recipe by Tablespoon.com.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken (2 breasts, 2 thighs, 2 drumsticks, 2 wings)
  • 2 quarts neutral oil, for frying
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt

  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram

Steps

  • 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.
