Fried chicken in a southern favorite, but add the delicious seasonings of the famous KFC and you’ve got yourself a magnificent treat! Here is an easy spice blend that you can make ahead and keep on hand for fabulous chicken (Baked or Fried!) that tastes like the famous food chain we’ve all come to know and love.

Combine the following in a blender or coffee mill until fine powder

1 tablespoon rosemary
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon sage
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 1/2 teaspoons thyme
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons minced parsley
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
2 tablespoons garlic salt
2 tablespoons onion salt
2 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder
1 package Lipton tomato cup-a-soup mix

Combine all ingredients and seal in ziploc or vacuum seal bag (or jar) or spice jar. When you’re ready to use the seasoning mix simply add 1 oz. mix per cup of flour for coating chicken. You can use a mixture of 1/2 white flour, 1/2 wheat flour for a heartier coating, particularly if you’re baking.


Dip the chicken into beaten egg (or buttermilk) and then into the coating. Bake or fry as desired.
