Does anybody have the original recipe for Kentucky Fried Ch?

Help please: I am looking for the original Kentucky Fried Chicken
Thank You,

I don’t have an original recipe for it , but I had a newsletter years ago and they used a package of Italian dressing mix, the dry one you mix with oil and vinegar. Just use the dry mix added in the flour to coat your chicken. Also KFC pressure cooks their chicken first and then fries it. This I know because my brother worked there.

Dear Guest,
Thank you VERY MUCH! I had heard that GOOD SEASONS is used
and also that the chicken was put in a pressure cooker. I just
wasn’t sure how to go about it.
Thank you again,

Dear Guest or Anyone,
Is the chicken coated with flour and salad dressing before
pressure cooking or before frying?

No you coat the chicken in the flour and seasoning mix after you pressure cook it. Mix the flour and seasoning mix together then dip your chicken in it. I would let it air dry for about 30 min before I fried it to let the coating set up so it doesnt all come off while cooking.

I’ve tried the recipe from America’s Most Waanted Recipes –
It taste just like the real thing.
I’ve also found a new set of low carb recipes for free at:

Does anyone know the recipe for KFC’s popcorn chicken? I have no idea if it is the same as for KFC’s origional chicken recipe.

No they do not pressure cook it and then fry it. It is fried in a pressure cooker. I use to be a KFC mgr. And I cooked ton’s of chicken. And I still eat it today.

how do you pressure cook the chicken?

how do you pressure cook the chicken?

Place 6 cups of Crisco shortening into your pressure cookerand heat on
medium till shortening reaches 400F. Place coated chicken, 4 or 5 pieces
at a time into shortening and lock lid. When pressure builds up cook for
10 minutes.

Follow manufacturers instructions for your pressure cooker to release!

thank you. is it safe to deep fry in the pressure cooker?

I would assume so, I got this information from a recipe for
KFC Original Chicken I have. Personally I don"t own a pressure
cooker and have never tried this method.

My best advice would be to consult the manufacturer’s manual
that came with your pressure cooker.
