On August 29 2016 rumors hit the internet stating that Colonel Sanders’ secret recipe was accidentally revealed. A sheet of paper with the hand written ingredients are supposedly Colonel Sanders’ secret herbs and spices. Fact or fiction, I don’t know but as Chef, I thought I’d do the taste test. There are of course other factors at play, such as pressurized deep fryers which most of us don’t own. Plus brining your chicken in salted buttermilk will always render a more succulent chicken. But the purpose of this video is purely to see how close these herbs and spices truly are. See for yourself how to make what I feel is if not the original, the closest KFC recipe ever. The recipe measurements were hard to read and looked like tablespoons, however it now appears they were teaspoons.  I therefore altered the recipe to teaspoons.  Let me know what you thought of the taste once you’ve tried, I’d love to know!  Thanks and good luck!  Joel.
