Default Anyone Watching "Top Secret Recipe" on CMT?

Todd Wilbur has turned his book "Top Secret Recipes" into a show. It's on now on CMT. It will be replayed tonight at 11pm EST and later this weekend. Tonight's episode is about the KFC fried chicken recipe.

Ok so what is the secret recipe for KFC?

Actually I like the extra crispy a lot better than the original.

He did not figure out the recipe. They still gave him free chicken for life. It was a great commercial for KFC.

I enjoyed the show. Sounds like he got close. I'm going to try out his recipe and see how it goes.

It was nice to learn that KFC is basically brined chicken.

I got about 10 minutes into it before I shut it off. I don't need to watch an hour long commercial (with commercials) for KFC.

If anyone didn't watch or DVR it, you can view it on CMT's web sit and get the recipe he used.

I have a couple of his books. I've tried a few of the recipes and was very disappointed. They've been packed away for awhile now.

I doubt that KFC uses whole herbs and spices. It'd be way to easy for someone with an electron microscope to figure out whats in it. I'll bet that they use herb and spice extracts in water, alcohol or oil to add flavor to their breading mix without making their secret readily visible.

It'd explain how some researchers a few years ago found only salt and black pepper in the breading.

Many years ago when I was a kid and KFC was Kentucky Fried Chicken the chicken was better than it is nowadays. If were to try and clone today's recipe I think it may be something like

9 assorted pieces of chicken (the smaller the better and broken bones are a plus)
2 cups flour
6 tbs salt
6 tbs salt (needed some more)
6 tbs salt (not quite there yet)
2 tbs salt (that's about right)
1/2 pinch black pepper (don't overpower the salt)
a pinch of 11 Herbs/ Spices
1 Large pot of grease

Put the chicken in cool grease so it can absorb all that goodness. Then crank up the heat and cook until the chicken is golden brown. Remove from grease, cover with foil until the crust softens up and serve.
