"This is as close to the real deal that I have tried, it`s great with fried, baked, broiled chicken. This makes about 1/3 cup, store the rest in a glass jar with a lid in the refrigerator. Like KFC"

I used this on chicken tenders that I marinated in buttermilk and it was fantastic! Very close to KFC :)

We enjoyed this chicken baked in the oven. My chicken breast turned out crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. It tasted good, but not exactly like KFC. That being said, it was darn good and we will have it again!

Close but no cigar! Like you say this is the closest one to date. Will make again to use on other things as well. Nice job!
