    2. I worked for KFC, their coleslaw cabbage mix is delivered in a bag and then there is a gallon carton of whitetish chemical that is poured into the cabbage mixture and then stirred together. But if someone is clever enough they can get the taste right.
      I did find this copycat recipe:

      Ingredients
      Nutrition
      Servings 24
      Units US

      4 1⁄2 teaspoons tarragon vinegar
      6 1⁄2 tablespoons vegetable oil
      3⁄4 cup chopped onion
      2 1⁄2 cups Miracle Whip
      1 cup sugar
      2 carrots
      2 heads cabbage

      Directions

      Mix oil, onions and sugar.
      Add tarragon vinegar.
      Fold in Miracle Whip.
      Pour over grated carrots and cabbage.
      Fold in well.
      Refrigerate in an air-tight covered dish.
      Best if made the night before serving.
      The tarragon is the secret seasoning.
      Compare with the real KFC coleslaw.

    1. Crispy Fried Chicken KFC

      Ingredients:
      • 1 (2 to 3 lbs) cut-up chicken
      • 1 quart water
      • 3 Tbsp salt (for soaking)
      • 1 cup milk
      • 1 egg, beaten
      • 2 cups flour
      • 1 tsp Accent® (MSG)
      • 1 Tbsp salt
      • 1 tsp black pepper
      • Soybean oil (no substitutions) for frying
      Preparation:
      NOTE: KFC uses pressure cookers to fry chicken, which is risky to do at home. If you are using a deep fryer, fry a few pieces at a time for about 20 minutes, covered, turning occasionally. Likewise, if pan frying, cook, covered, turning occasionally for about 30 minutes. As always with chicken, check the middle of a large piece to check for doneness. Allow to drain on paper towels when cooking is completed.
      Allow chicken to soak in salted water for 30 minutes.
      Mix egg and milk in a bowl. Mix flour, Accent®, salt and pepper in another bowl. Preheat deep fryer to 350° F, or place 3/4 inch oil in a skillet over medium heat.
      Dry chicken with paper towels. Dredge in flour mixture. Dip into milk-egg mixture, then back into flour mixture. Do this one piece at a time making sure that there is total coverage over entire surface of chicken in each step.
      Servings:

    1. I think we can make our own decisions on where and what to eat...we have to have free choice in something since the government (cough*Obama) has already taken some choices from us and wants to take more...it's time to fight for our rights!!! Parents need to control their kids and adults and YAs need go control themselves too we shouldn't gave to have food taken away from us because the government wants to make Americans healthy!!

    2. I don't think anyone has the right to tell use what is and isn't bad for us! Hell they have recalls on spinach and lettuce all the time so there you have it. I'll eat what I want deep fat fryer or not! Breaded or not!
