I got this through the Copy-cat page, and these cooks say that not only is it perfect for chicken, but they have used it with great success as a rub on pork and beef! I think that I am going to try it on a mild flavored white fish as well. What a great recipe to have!

How to Make KFC Original Recipe Herbs


  1. Mix all ingredients and store in a glass jar. When ready to make your fried chicken, add 2 Tablespoons to your flour. Fry or oven-fry chicken as you normally would.
  2. Note: You can certainly use fresh herbs either; but I specified dry, because many do not have access to fresh herbs. If you use fresh, you need to chop it up or put it in a chopper until it is very fine, and you need to use at least another half of what is called for, sometimes double. If you are used to working with fresh herbs, you know that they taste much nicer, and you are likely to know best how to use them.
