Colonel Sanders' nephew casually revealed to a reporter a recipe that had been passed down in a family scrapbook.

Could this be KFC's closely guarded secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices? The nephew, Joe Ledington, said it is. He claims his job as a kid was to mix this same recipe in large batches.

The comments say you need a pressure cooker...

Chawlie, it has been a long time since I had KFC, but I don't remember tasting oregano or basil. What do you think?

Lemme flap in on this one: 1) Irony -- just a few days ago, I had KFC's chicken Pot Pie. Had to pull up thru the drive-thru and wait: was told thay had a "run" on them. They are good enough for me to become a repeat customer. 2) Though this palate is a bit less sharp than it used to be, I'm still able to parse out most -- most -- herbs and/or spices. Thus I agree with JimZ: Had the chicken breast many times, the tenders/strips many times, also. But do not re-call the presence of oregano nor basil, either...Could it be that the nephew is having a barrel of laughs? Can't say that there's a connection, but the nephew seems to be a fun-loving sort. Pray tell, I ask, does that nephew have anything to do with the recent tee-vee KFC promos blitzes in assorted markets that fairly drips with humor?...No question, We have proof positive that when many of Today's youngsters get blood-line opps for the CEO's ear, many, traditions be damned, will cast a licked finger -- and sometimes the company's fate -- to the winds....One Grrrr about KFC: Their Jalapeno peppers are waaaay too toothsome. Should be more "smooshy," I've complained, many times.

I'm vaguely remembering an article I read years ago about the secret recipe. I do recall oregano being mentioned. I'll see what I can find after a little research.
