What is the secret of KFC chicken?
Before being cooked, the chicken is marinated for several hours with a blend of spices including salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika. This mixture can of course be personalized according to taste with a little chilli, ginger or curry.
As for the breading, if it is so crispy, it is because it is not made with breadcrumbs, but with cereals. More precisely, cornflakes, plain and unsweetened, of course, and puffed rice. We first roll the chicken in flour, then dip it in egg, before covering it with powdered cereals.
Once fried, you get a chicken that is soft at the core and a crispy exterior.
