To create the famous KFC Original Secret Chicken, gather the following ingredients:
|1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
|3 beaten eggs
|4 tablespoons oil
For the Coating:
|2 cups all-purpose flour
|4 teaspoons paprika
|1 teaspoon salt
|1 teaspoon pepper
|1 teaspoon poultry seasoning (or chicken stock powder)
|1 teaspoon dried oregano
|1 teaspoon dried tarragon
|1 teaspoon dried parsley
|1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
|1 teaspoon dried chives
|1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
|1/2 teaspoon onion powder
|1/2 teaspoon celery salt
- In a clean plastic bag, combine all the coating ingredients. Grind them finely with a mortar and pestle to ensure a well-blended and flavorful coating.
- Dip each chicken piece first in the beaten eggs and then place them in the plastic bag with the flour mixture. Shake the bag to coat each piece completely with the flavorful flour mixture.
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat.
- Brown the coated chicken pieces in the hot oil slowly and uncovered. Be patient and let the chicken cook evenly until it’s browned on all sides.
- Once browned, cover the skillet with a lid and continue frying the chicken on a very gentle heat until it is fully cooked. The gentle frying helps to make the chicken tender and juicy.
- Remove the chicken from the skillet and place it on paper towels to drain out any excess oil.
