My friends and family love this recipe for fried chicken. I never did find savory, so I make it without it, but it is still delicious and after trying 10-15 other recipes, this one is our favorite.

Not the best fried chicken recipe I've ever had. I added all the ingredients thinking it would be way too spicy, but actually, it was quite bland.

If your expecting KFC chicken don't make this! My family ate it but none of us were overly impressed. This recipe has potential though. Personally I would leave out the savory next time this herb is way too strong for chicken. I may try this again but will definately adjust the herbs and spices more to our liking. Spice mixture will also stick to chicken better if you dip in plain flour then egg then spice mixture. I also double dipped in egg and spice mixture.

I really have no idea why everyone is comparing this recipe to KFC. KFC wasn't even around when fried chicken was invented. This is a Spice Mix FOR chicken, the recipe author DIDN'T state it was KFC's spice mix for chicken. Most reviewers are taste comparing this with a fast food chain's flavors, instead of basing their reviews on the flavor itself to chicken. The taste was pretty good. It bumped up a regular fried chicken recipe. I made it exactly as directed for my first batch. With my second batch, I added a little bit of poultry seasoning, sage, onion powder, marjoram, corriander and cumin. I'm giving 4 stars to the recipe because of the process of double cooking. I would prefer to do it once and be done, not add extra steps.

We enjoyed the taste but it did not taste that much like KFC. I'll still use it again. It was good. Thanks!

My Husband was disappointed. Didn't taste at all like KFC. I rather go to KFC next time to get my fried chicken. Spices are expensive probably come out cheaper going to KFC! Beth Turney

This is a great chicken recipe, however, it does taste anything like KFC chicken. A person can play around with the amounts of spices being used to fit your own taste.
