KFC Chicken

KFC Chicken. KFC-Style Fried Chicken. As one of the most beloved fast-food chains in the world, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is known for its signature fried chicken. Many people have tried to recreate the KFC chicken recipe at home, but few have succeeded in getting that perfect blend of flavors and crispy texture that makes KFC chicken so addictive. In this blog, we will be sharing a recipe for KFC-style fried chicken that you can make at home.


  • 8–10 pieces of chicken (you can use any cut you prefer, such as drumsticks, thighs, or breasts)
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon of dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon of dried sage
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, paprika, salt, oregano, basil, sage, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Stir until the ingredients are well combined.

  2. In a separate bowl, pour the buttermilk.

  3. Dip each piece of chicken into the buttermilk, making sure that it is fully coated.

  4. Place the chicken into the bowl with the flour mixture, and toss to coat each piece evenly. Press the flour mixture onto the chicken to make sure it adheres well.

  5. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan or deep fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  6. Carefully place each piece of chicken into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry the chicken for about 12–15 minutes, or until it is golden brown and crispy.

  7. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove the chicken from the oil, and place it onto a wire rack or paper towels to drain off any excess oil.

  8. Serve the chicken while it is still hot and crispy, with your favorite dipping sauce.


  • To get the best results, it's important to use a deep-fry thermometer to monitor the temperature of the oil. If the oil is too hot, the chicken will burn on the outside and remain uncooked on the inside. If the oil is too cold, the chicken will not cook evenly and will be greasy.
  • For an extra crispy crust, you can double-dip the chicken in the flour mixture after it has been coated with buttermilk.
  • If you don't have buttermilk, you can make a substitute by mixing together 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes until it curdles before using it in the recipe.
  • To make the recipe healthier, you can bake the chicken in the oven instead of frying it. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and place the coated chicken on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 40–45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and crispy.

In conclusion, this KFC-style chicken recipe is a delicious and easy way to enjoy fried chicken at home. With a few simple ingredients and some basic kitchen equipment, you can recreate the flavors and textures that have made KFC so famous around the world. Give it a try and see how it compares to the real thing!
