Original kfc-style chicken


- 1 whole chicken (2 breasts, 2 thighs, 2 drumsticks, 2 wings)
- 2 quarts neutral oil, for frying
- 1 egg white
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt


- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 2 teaspoons onion salt
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon celery salt
- ½ teaspoon dried sage
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon ground allspice
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- ½ teaspoon dried basil
- ½ teaspoon dried marjoram


1 Preheat fryer to 350°F. Thoroughly mix together all the spice mix ingredients.

2 Combine spice mix with flour, brown sugar and salt.

3 Dip chicken pieces in egg white to lightly coat them, then transfer to flour mixture. Turn a few times and make sure the flour mix is really stuck to the chicken. Repeat with all the chicken pieces.

4 Let chicken pieces rest for 5 minutes so crust has a chance to dry a bit.

5 Fry chicken in batches. Breasts and wings should take 12-14 minutes, and legs and thighs will need a few more minutes. Chicken pieces are done when a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165°F.
