Nice first post, Gruehunter Thanks for that.

Merudo my KFC attempts are laughable. Nowhere near the goodness of KFC. Perhaps I should just forget about replicating KFC and just go make some nice Southern Fried Chicken.

But you can be a pioneer! Seriously, if you were to 'crack the code' for home cooked KFC, you would be heralded as a hero.

Maybe you should attempt to make your own double down?

KFC's been 'cracked' for years.

Todd Wilbur's recipe, published in his Top Secret Recipes books and website, pretty much nailed it, although you have to be willing to fry in a sealed pressure cooker. (As an aside, we love his KFC coleslaw recipe, which takes minutes to make in a food processor and is perfect for huge parties, because a single cabbage makes a gigantic amount of slaw. His gravy recipe is good too.)

More recently (2009), American's Most Wanted Recipes author Ron Douglas released an Original Recipe clone that gained international media attention. See this write up and video in The Guardian for the recipe, along with a 'crowd sourced' recipe (spoiler - the fomer nails the original thanks to a massive dose of MSG, while the latter is a more refined affair suitable for picnics).

Otherwise, just Google 'todd wilbur kfc' or 'ron douglas kfc' for plenty of articles and videos.

This sauce is ********* awesome, I toned down the chilli content to be on the safe side (for the misses) but we both think you got the chilli mix right.

I did cut the salt and oil mix down, but that's my health drive kicking in.

this marinade make a cheap but tasty maryland taste amazing,

I WILL be making again.

I took some into work and at least one person will be making it on the weekend.

Utterly fantastic.

Will be making this ASAP

Thanks, good to hear. Where are the pics?

This dish is very cheap to prepare. At my local markets (Box Hill Centro), chicken maryland sells for $6.50 for 2kg! The rest of the marinade ingredients probably adds up to $8 per portion. Charcoal is about $3. So - for less than $20, you can feed six people.

I'm not too interested in KFC, but I've been meaning to try Thomas Keller's southern fried chicken recipe for aaaages. Just haven't gotten around to it... plus I'm on a bit of a health kick and deep fried chook probably aint good for it.

Here's what we usually serve our Portuguese Chicken with:



Corn Salsa with Coriander, Radish, Avo, Red Onions, Red Capsicum, Jalapenos and Lime.

err I was too busy eating sorry next time.

I even did some corn on the bbq which was so much better than i remember.

Also I did the chicken & corn on an open grill gas bbq (low to medium heat and it turned out great).

No food processor - buy one of these. Make sure it has the food processor attachment! The cheapest one on that site is $87, but it is worth splurging out a bit more. You get a quieter motor, longer warranty, and more attachments.

Nice attempt, but chicken ribs might cook a bit too fast?
