Why The World's Most Authentic KFC Recipe Might Be In Ireland
By MELISSA CAMPANA
If you've ever licked your fingers after a bucketful of Colonel Sanders' KFC and thought you could make it at home, you’re probably going to need to stock up on MSG and invest in a pressure fryer. However, if you truly want the best KFC, you may just have to travel to Ireland.
KFC is renowned worldwide for its tasty secret recipe, made up of a unique blend of herbs and spices. According to Glen Powell, the host of the "Glen and Friends Cooking" YouTube channel, Harland Sanders "would often give the recipe out to his franchisees, because he wanted them to make better chicken than the corporation in the United States wanted him to make."
After selling the company in the 1960s, Sanders ensured his recipe was honored in other countries, including Ireland. Sanders met an Irish salesman named Pat Grace in Toronto, and they became good friends. Pat brought the secret recipe home to Ireland, and — according to Glen Powell — it's as close to the original recipe as you can find.
