So so sooo excited to share with you my new recipe KFC at home, my boyfriend and I have been having cravings for KFC almost every week and we’ve now mastered the recipe to get the perfect fried chicken all at home for half the price it’d cost eating out, although what I’ve served it with on this occasion is not at all what you’d expect at a diner it was very delicious and we will be making again, I’ll tell you!


Gluten, mustard, eggs, milk & sulphites.



Serves: 2

2 Chicken breasts

200g Flour


Paprika, cayenne, chilli powder, garlic, mixed herbs, black pepper, onion salt.

For the buttermilk

100g Natural yoghurt

100g Mayonnaise

100ml Milk

For the potato salad

300g Baby potatoes

1 small onion

50g mayonnaise

50g natural yoghurt

Wholegrain mustard – Tablespoon

Honey – Tablespoon

For the salad

Handful each of spinach

1/2 beetroot

3 cherry/ plum tomatoes

1 spring onion





Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

  1. Slice the chicken into strips and marinade in the buttermilk by mixing the ingredients together – the longer the marinade is on the more tender the chicken becomes.
  2. Boil a pan of water, dice the potato smaller than bite-size, and boil until soft, around 20 minutes. Dice the onion, mix together the dressing.
  3. Chop put the salad and add to a plate ready to serve. Mix the flour and spices together, and dip the chicken into it so it’s covered all over.
  4. Heat a pan of oil, I used olive oil and fill it about 2cm deep when hot, add in the cover chicken and turn regularly to avoid burning on the bottom of the pan. They cook for 5 minutes of so each, drain on a separate plate with kitchen roll to soak up any extra oil.
  5. Serve up and dig in you won’t be able to resist.
