Well it looks like you're missing some chicken in there.

Do they actually use chicken in KFC? I mean, since they dropped Chicken from the name.

I just want to be authentic.

Huh...I guess the taste could be similar, but the way they cook it is still different right? Double frying and all that.

Pressure cooker iirc. Also psychology plus branding enhances the flavor quite a bit.

They're nice enough, but it's no Popeye's.

I've yet to have actual fresh popeyes. I've only had the cold version, the dry old version, or their boneless cuts.

One of the keys to KFC results is that their chicken is pressure fried. This is not something easily replicated at home.

Otherwise, Todd Wilbur of Top Secret Recipes offers a good clone recipe and technique.

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-2 tablespoon(s) olive oil

I've never understood the fascination with the mildest most boring part of the chicken. People don't even taste the breast, since it's always covered up with tons of spices. Gimme crispy juicy thighs any day.

Agreed. Although I like the drumsticks even better

Gordon Ramsey's Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Sweet Pickled Celery. Looks awesome

It’s probably because thighs and drumsticks have bones, and people don’t like bones. I’m fine with it, because it usually means more tasty parts of the chicken for me! Admittedly, I have had abstolutely fantastic fried chicken breasts before — at a little place somewhere in East Texas. But, even though the breasts were better than the good bits at some other places, the thighs and drumsticks were even better.
