Three alternative 'KFC' spice mixes

First, a spice mix from Youtube, unknown quantities derived from conversations with Grace's employee

fine ground black pepper
cracked black pepper
course ground black pepper
white pepper
allspice /summer savoury
ground coriander

mix egg and milk, coat chicken pieces, coat pieces in spice/flour mix, deep fry in pressure fryer 200c 7 minutes

Alternative 1:

use egg whites and milk, no yolk. Coat chicken in flour mix, then egg/milk, then flour mix again

5 cups of plain flour

4 tbsp paprika

2 tbsp white pepper

2 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp ground ginger

1 tbsp mustard powder

1 tbsp Celery salt

1 tbsp Black pepper

1/2 tbsp of oregano

1/2 tbsp of thyme

1/3 tbsp of sea salt

Alternative 2 from handwritten note, reputed to be the original recipe, found in the belongings of a relative of Colonel Sanders:

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2/3 tablespoon salt
    1/2 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
    1/2 tablespoon dried basil leaves
    1/3 tablespoon dried oregano leaves
    1 tablespoon celery salt
    1 tablespoon ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon dried mustard
    3 tablespoons paprika (original recipe calls for 4 tablespoons)
    2 tablespoons garlic salt
    1 tablespoon ground ginger
    3 tablespoons ground white pepper

    1 cup buttermilk
    1 large egg
    1 chicken , cut into 10 pieces (2 wings, 2 legs, 2 thighs and 2 breasts each cut in half to make 4 breast pieces)
    vegetable oil for frying

I don't know which of these is more authentic, I will be trying them out over the coming while.

Thanks for posting! These I'll definitely be trying out.

I find KFC too spicy.
Burns my tongue.

On the other hand McDonalds is a bit bland.

I'm the opposite, but then again I'm a chilli lover. If KFC could crank their Zinger burger up by about 1000%, I'd be a much happier person.
