It is amazing to view the works of the KFC chefs, passionated about their work, they faithfully followed the steps that was created by the founder Mr Colonel Sanders.
One of the secrets that was revealed is it’s unique “7-10-7” breading technique, which consists of ‘rolling’ 7 times in a basket after being cleaned and rinsed to remove any excess moisture, tossing the chicken in the breading flour for 10 times using a ‘scoop and lift’ motion and pressed into the breading flour for 7 times to ensure the ideal flour-to-chicken coating ratio on each pieces. All Original Recipe chickens are hand-breaded in an exact sequence with its secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices.
After all the preparation, the chicken is placed into this unique basket and put it into the pressure fryer and fried to the golden color and fragrant chicken that we recognize.
