The obsession started years ago after a challenge from his wife: Could finance manager Ron Douglas, an avid cook and Kentucky Fried Chicken fan, really crack the code to the best-kept culinary secret in the country? After several attempts, the Long Island, N.Y., man says he may know the 11 herbs and spices in KFC’s recipe — and now he's sharing the secret with the world.

Well I work at KFC and yes the original chicken is pressure cooked and it takes like twenty minutes to cook. Our crispy goes into the deep friar and we use a separate flour for the crispy apart from the original. as for the grilled it's a complete different seasoning from the crispy and the original. The grilled goes on a grilled rack with another grilled rack on top into an oven. It looks and taste like grilled chicken but technically it's baked. but still... chicken is chicken.

They use Henny-Penny Pressure fryers with digital sms controls to cook the chicken, no baking. The only baking of chicken is there new grilled. It is laid on black cast iron racks seasoned then put into a convection combi oven and baked,There are no grills for it. How do I know? Because I work on KFC equipment doing repairs daily.

The best way to keep this secret would not tell the truth. I don't think there is is 11 herbs and spices. if there isn't 11 then no one will ever discover the secret. All these people trying for years can't get it because there are not 11.
