  • I always add a bit of lemon to my chicken marinade, it just adds extra flavor to it. Also, if you add a bit more lemon you "surprise" get lemon flavored chicken. It's good, everyone should try it. The fact that they are surprised about citrus improving chicken surprises me.

    • btw, this is exactly how Formula 409 got its name.... ( you know the Cleaner...formula 409) for real they had creation after creation of cleaning mixture 409 times, which they decided was the perfect blend. hence its name that is CRAZY! think about that. i would quit after mixture 201.

  • I call BS on Marion Kay and this video. I made this just like they said and it didn't look like their chicken and didn't come close to KFC. I do have to say it was good but NOT close. I think someone may have been paid to say it was a KFC copy. To say it was almost 90% KFC is BS. I would love to be in that room when they make it, I don't think it will taste like they claim.

  • Colonel Sanders Original “Cracklin Gravy 1952-1964” 1 TBSP butter (margarine can’t be a good substitute) 1/4 cup Original Recipe breading flour 1/2 cup cracklings strained from the pressure cooker or frying pan 1 cup whole milk - cold 1 cup boiling water 1/4 cup whole cream - cold Put butter, flour and cracklings into a frying pan over low to medium heat. Stir continuously until the ingredients are fully blended and the raw flour is lightly browned. This takes a few minutes. The roux should not be darker than peanut butter brown. Gently pour the milk, hot water, and cream, continue stirring until it begins to thicken. Salt and pepper to taste. Allow mixture to simmer until it reaches desired thickness, then turn off the heat and serve.

  • There is no 'LOVE" i the Colonel's recipe. It's Killer instinct, Rage and Failure till you're 65 years old. The Colonel once tried to MURDER a guy. He was always a failure at whatever he did till at age 65 he started making that Chicken and a Gravy which was also GREAT! You have to have those personal trairs and absolutely NO LOVE to come out with that particular flavor. You can still taste Harland's desperation even with that added citrus preservative Corporate added after the bought the 'secret'. To top it off you MUST fry it in a pressure Cooker. That's the way the Colonel did it and that's why it was famous right off the bat. Remember it's Failure, Murderous desperation and Old Age, in that order ! :)
