  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Mix all spice ingredients together with the flour and cornstarch, set aside in large bowl. Beat eggs into water in separate bowl.
  3. Place chicken pieces in an egg mixture just long enough to get saturated (add more water if necessary). Drain, then coat each piece in the flour mixture.
  4. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown. Finish off the chicken by baking it for about 1 hour, or until juices run clear.

Not even close to KFC, which I love. There is no heat in KFC at all. But, I will say the recipe posted works, but I'm not a fan.

Just saying......I worked for KFC....there isn't any "hot" spices in the 14 herbs. Nope, don't know the recipe...but spicy chicken is Popeye's. BUT! From what I've been told, Penzkeys "FINES" herb is extremely close. Mostly everything had a LOT of black pepper in it. Gravy, chicken and coleslaw.

I'll be waiting to make this soon.

Instead of that flour misture, try Kentucky Kernal seasoned flour. They sell it at Walmart and it tastes just like KFC.

I'm putting these ingredients aside in a jar to make when needed. Sounds very good to make. I love Kentucky fried chicken, so now i've got my own version. Even if it's not the same as theirs................sounds good!
