KFC Style Fried Chicken Recipe


  • 4 lbs. chicken pieces (wings, legs, thighs)
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tsp. hot sauce
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Marinate the chicken in a mixture of buttermilk, hot sauce, and 1 tsp. of salt for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, paprika, thyme, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  3. Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a large, heavy pot to 375°F.
  4. Working in batches, remove the chicken from the buttermilk mixture and shake off the excess. Dip the chicken into the flour mixture, pressing the flour mixture into the chicken to ensure it is evenly coated.
  5. Carefully place the chicken into the hot oil and fry for 10-12 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Drain the fried chicken on paper towels to remove any excess oil.
  7. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Note: The cooking time may vary depending on the size of your chicken pieces, so be sure to check for doneness by cutting into the thickest part of the chicken to ensure that it is well cooked. This recipe is just one of many variations and may not taste exactly like KFC’s fried chicken. However, it’s a good starting point if you want to try making a similar dish at home.

Vitamins in a Fried Chicken

A fried chicken typically contains various vitamins, such as:

  1. Vitamin B3 (Niacin): Helps maintain healthy skin, nerves and digestion.
  2. Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine): Supports brain function and helps produce red blood cells.
  3. Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin): Supports nerve function and helps make DNA.
  4. Vitamin D: Helps the body absorb calcium and supports bone health.
  5. Vitamin K: Supports blood clotting and bone health.

It’s important to note that while fried chicken can be a source of vitamins, it’s also high in saturated fat and calories, which can be harmful in excess. It’s best to enjoy fried chicken in moderation as part of a balanced diet that includes a variety of foods.
