Homemade Fried Chicken

This particular recipe has been rumored to have your chicken tasting just like the colonel's. Get your supply of Eleven Herbs and Spices and have people running to your table, even if you don't live in Kentucky.


  • Your choice of Canola Oil or Vegetable Oil.
  • 1 Whole Chicken cut up or the equivalent of your preferred precut Chicken parts.
  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour.
  • 1 Cup Buttermilk.
  • 3 Tablespoons Chief Eleven Herbs and Spices 
  • Pinch Scorpion Bonnet Pepper Powder (optional, to taste).


  • Place cleaned and dry Chicken parts in a bowl.
  • Place the buttermilk in a separate bowl.
  • In yet another bowl, blend the Eleven Herbs and Spices and pepper powder with the Flour.
  • In sequence, dust each piece of Chicken with the Flour mixture, dip them into the Buttermilk until they are soaked, then place them into the flour mixture.
  • Make sure each piece of chicken is soaked in Buttermilk and completely coated with Flour.
  • Place in a sealed container in the refrigerator for at least two hours, overnight if possible.

Cooking Instructions:

  • Heat oil at medium-high in a large Frying Pan or Fryer.
  • Start frying the breasts or larger pieces first as they will take longer to cook.
  • If using a Frying Pan, turn the Chicken periodically to avoid burning.
  • Continue frying until all pieces are properly cooked, usually 15-20 minutes.

Serving Suggestions: Serve with White Rice or Rice and Peas. Sprinkle Chicken with Hot Pepper Sauce for an even more incredible flavor. Enjoy!
