Ingredients

For the KFC spice mix

  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp black pepper omit or use less if desired
  • 2 tbsp onion flakes
  • 1 tbsp dried garlic
  • 1 tbsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tbsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tbsp sweet / mild paprika
  • 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tbsp yellow mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp dried thyme

For coating

  • 1 tbsp KFC spice mix
  • 3 tbsp Unflavoured Whey Protein Powder
  • 1 whole egg

Protein or vegetable to coat for example

  • Use tenderloins, breast, wings, fish pieces etc. this recipe is enough for 4 chicken tenderloins or 2 large breasts gently pounded to make them a little thinner and even.

Instructions

  • Blend all spices together 20 seconds / speed 10 / mc on, or use a bullet blender or processor and process until the mixture resembles a fine powder
  • Scrape down and repeat
  • Move to a jar
  • Combine 1 tablespoon KFC Spice mix from the jar to 3 tablespoons whey protein powder and mix together well in a bowl
  • Gently whisk the egg in a separate bowl
  • Cut chicken into strips, leave whole, cut into nugget size or smaller for kid friendly bite sized pieces
  • Dip chicken in egg wash then coat on each side into the spice mix
  • Shallow fry until golden and cooked on medium/high heat using ghee, lard or light and mild olive oil

*if your kids want a milder flavour, use 1/2 tablespoon spice mix to 3 tablespoons whey protein powder

    * add chipotle powder, cayenne pepper or chilli powder to make this hot n spicy!

      The best part of this recipe is you can keep this spice mix in the jar, just add the protein powder when you're ready to use it for a quick weeknight meal - double the spice mix too if you want a larger stash!

      • If you don't have unflavoured whey protein powder you can use crushed pork rinds or almond meal.

      Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Seriously love this recipe! It didn’t quite taste like KFC chicken to me, but similar enough to quench that fast food craving.
