Hi.. My son worked at KFC for a short time and they use a pressure fryer (hot) and cook for just 10 minutes.

This recipe is my attempt at KFC

1 eggs, beaten        1 1/2 cups milk

1 cup flour      3/4 cup fine bread crumbs

1 tsp. dry chicken bouillon   

1/2 tsp. paprika        1 tbsp. Accent        

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder   1 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. dried parsley flakes     1 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. Wondra flour    5-6 cups cooking oil  

1 chicken, cut in pieces.  1/2 cup flour       

In bowl #1 put 1/2 cup flour.

In bowl #2 mix eggs, milk, soy sauce, & bouillon, half the parsley and Wondra flour.

In bowl #3 combine 1 cup flour, bread crumbs, remaining parsley and spices. Mix well with a fork.  Roll each chicken piece around until well covered, first in plain flour, then milk mixture, then in flour/bread crumbs mixture.(You can use flour in place of bread crumbs.) Heat oil to 360 degrees, fry pieces until golden brown, start large (about 15 minutes on each side) Reduce heat if browns too quickly. Drain on paper towels.

The pressure frying is a good chunk of KFC's "secret". Salt, pepper, and MSG come pretty close in flavoring. Todd Wilbur covers the techniques and copycat recipes quite well in his  Top Secret Recipes books. You can also buy individual recipes off his site www.topsecretrecipes.com  The books are worthwhile and frequently discounted at places like Costco.

i've been most fond of his recreation of White Castle burgers myself.

I can't think of a consumer available pressure cooker that is rated for frying. All the brands I've seen specifically forbid it.

Even on the ones KFC uses, they go through the pressure seals pretty quickly as they get damaged from the hot oil.

Haven't seen those before. They look fun but way too pricey for just pressure frying as I already have a good pressure cooker.

Stumbled across this "breading recipe" while looking for the Fagor Pressure Magic pressure fryer and though it worth posting for discussion (I have NOT tried it!).
