Homemade KFC chicken. After many trial and error finally we got a perfect and tasty KFC style fried chicken with some Indian spices and seasonings. Perfect wavy layers is achieved by coating the chicken pieces well with the flour. And also we added spices to suit our Indians taste.

Some history of KFC Chicken :

KFC’s original product is pressure-fried chicken pieces, seasoned with Sanders’ recipe of 11 herbs and spices.The constituents of the recipe are a trade secret. Larger portions of fried chicken are served in a cardboard “bucket”, which has become a feature of the chain since it was first introduced by franchisee Pete Harman in 1957. Since the early-1990s, KFC has expanded its menu to offer other chicken products such as chicken fillet sandwiches and wraps, as well as salads and side dishes such as French fries and coleslaw, desserts, and soft drinks; the latter often supplied by PepsiCo. KFC is known for its slogans “It’s Finger Lickin’ Good!”, “Nobody does chicken like KFC”, and “So good”.
