KFC Fried Chicken Copycat Recipe: This World Famous Chicken Recipe Is Finger Lickin' Good

KFC boasts that they practically invented fried chicken. We agree! If you can't get enough Kentucky fried chicken in your life, here's a copycat KFC chicken recipe to try at home. (It may be time to restock the spice rack!) 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Servings: 6 to 8


  • 2 whole chickens, cut into pieces
  • oil, for frying


Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine all of the seasoning ingredients together. Mix well to thoroughly combine. 
  2. Put some water into a bowl and the flour spice mix into another large bowl. Dip the chicken pieces into the water and then into the seasoned flour. Set on a wire rack or wax paper for about 15 minutes. 
  3. Fill a large pot or deep fryer with oil. Preheat the oil to 345 degrees F.
  4. Put a few pieces of the chicken (pick ones about the same size) and cook until browned and cooked through (180 degrees F internal temperature), about 8 to 15 minutes depending on size of chicken. Remove to a wire rack or put on paper towels. Repeat with remaining chicken.
