Fake KFC Chicken


by: Aarthi

KFC's fried chicken is one of my favorite foods. I have had it twice in my life, it is not available in the place where I live, so I searched and Googled, and at long last I found this recipe which I made a little modification to according to my tastes. Surprisingly, it came out really good and tasted more or less like the KFC chicken I've tried. It turned out so crispy and juicy. Try it and I hope you enjoy it!
