What Makes KFC Chicken Special

Throughout each day, our trained cooks freshly prepare fried chicken using the Colonel’s Secret Recipe of 11 herbs & spices. It takes more than 25 minutes to hand bread and cook our chicken before it’s ready for your bucket or boxed meal. That’s why KFC has the world’s best chicken.

  1. We use 100 percent real chicken raised on U.S. farms.
  2. Our chicken is USDA inspected for quality before it can be delivered to our kitchens.
  3. Our chicken is free of added hormones and steroids. In fact, FDA regulations prohibit the addition of hormones in poultry in the U.S.
  4. As of January 1, 2019, all chicken purchased by KFC U.S. is raised without antibiotics important to human medicine, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO).
  5. All of our Core menu items are free of food dyes and artificial flavors (with the exception of beverages and third-party products). In addition, we have removed artificial colors from our Core products (with the exception of caramel coloring).
