KFC Hot and Spicy Chicken Recipe


  • 1 whole frying Chicken, cut up and marinated
  • 6 – 8 cups Shortening


  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon White Pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon MSG
  • 1/8 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon Baking Powder


  1. Trim any excess skin and fat from the chicken pieces.
  2. Preheat shortening in a deep-fryer to 350°F.
  3. Combine beaten egg and milk in a medium bowl.
  4. In another medium bowl, combine remaining coating ingredients.
  5. When chicken has marinated, transfer each piece to paper towels so that excess liquid can drain off.
  6. Working with one piece at a time, dip in egg and milk. Then coat chicken with the dry flour mixture, coated very generously. Stack chicken on a plate or cookie sheet until each piece has been coated.
  7. Carefully drop chicken, one piece at a time into the hot shortening.
  8. Fry 1/2 of the chicken at a time (4 pieces) for 12 – 15 minutes, or until it is golden brown. You should be sure to stir the chicken around halfway through the cooking time so that each piece cooks evenly.
  9. Remove chicken to a rack or towels to drain and cool for about 5 minutes before eating.
