Hey Colonel, I think I got your secret recipe!

by James Kerrison on January 21, 2010


We all know that chicken is a great source of protein and is also low in fat.

For a while it tastes great as well, ┬ábut then it starts to become a bit boring! There’s only so much chicken a person can eat! Unless of course you have the secret recipe!

I am pretty sure the Colonel was lying about his eleven secret herbs and spices. After a bit of trial and error we may have found his secret, and if you read and try the recipe below, you will agree that there’s no 11 herbs and spices in the KFC Chicken! The good news is you only need three common kitchen ingredients to get it pretty close and make that potentially boring chicken taste great again!

Before cooking your chicken breasts (500gm) in small strips or cubes, mix the following ingredients and cover it generously:

1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1 Teaspoon ground black pepper
100ml Light Soy Sauce
Then cook (shallow fry) in 150ml Olive or Peanut Oil


Of course if you want to got for the ‘Hot and Spicy’ mix simply add some chilli powder.

Tastes great served with a side of vegetables, we usually go for Cauliflower or Broccoli.

Give it a try and let us know what you think.
