It all started with one cook, Colonel Harland Sanders, who created a finger lickin’ good recipe more than 75 years ago.
Originally scratched out on the back of the door to his kitchen, this recipe of 11 herbs and spices is still the key ingredient to our success and kept top secret to this day.
HOW IT'S COOKED
We still follow the Colonel’s formula for success, with real cooks breading and freshly preparing our delicious chicken by hand in more than 20,000 restaurants in 125 countries and territories around the world.
The process begins with our cooks inspecting each individual piece of chicken. Then, they carefully roll the fresh chicken 7 times in our secret blend of 11 herbs & spices before rocking it 7 times and then pressure cooking it at a low temperature to preserve all the great taste we’re known for around the world.
