Also interesting about Gus Fried Chicken:

Who is the owner of Gus fried chicken?

Terry Bonner, the proprietor
Terry Bonner, the restaurant’s proprietor, says that the recipe for Gus’s famously spicy fried chicken dates back to 1953 and has been passed down through the family. When it comes to serving hot and spicy fried chicken, the Mason location was the first in all of West Tennessee.

How spicy is Gus’s fried chicken?

It’s a bit of a misnomer that Gus’s chicken is “hot and spicy.” Yes, it’s spicy and yes, it’s hot. However, it is not intolerable. As stated on the Gus website, “[T]he heat is more delicate, like the touch of an old friend.” (Perhaps an old friend with freshly cayenne peppered hands.)

2.Fried Chicken – ultra craggy crispy crust!

Fried Chicken - ultra craggy crispy crust!

Over is a recipe video. This recipe for fried chicken uses a method that produces an amazing crust that is really crunchy, extremely craggy, and has a ton of nubbly parts that become even more crunchy! With a KFC knockoff version of 11 Secret Herbs and Spices, but better than KFC because there is absolutely no sign of soggy parts! Thanks to a traditional Southern buttermilk marinade (see in post why there are no spices in the marinade! ), the flesh is moist throughout. Serve with potato topped with gravy and French fries for the ultimate at-home KFC experience.
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 10 people


  • 1.8 kg/ 3.6lb bone in skin on small thighs (< 200g/7oz), drumsticks, whole wings, breast (< 200g/7oz) (Note 1)
  • Buttermilk marinade:
  • 1 cup buttermilk Note 2 for sub
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • Fried Chicken Breading Note 9:
  • 2 1/4 cups flour plain / all purpose
  • 3/4 cup corn flour / cornstarch
  • KFC 11 Secret Herbs and Spices Note 9:
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp celery salt
  • 1.5 tbsp black pepper Note 2
  • 1.5 tsp sweet paprika ie. not hot or smoked
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper optional
  • 1.5 tsp onion powder
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 3/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1.5 tsp dried thyme
  • 1.5 tsp dried oregano
  • To fry:
  • 1.5 - 2 litres / quarts vegetable oil or canola or peanut, Note 8 for re-use


  • Buttermilk Marinade Chicken: In a basin, stir the marinade until the salt is dissolved.
  • Pour into plastic bag with chicken, then massage to coat. Remove excess air, seal, and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours while turning occasionally.
  • Place the chicken in a large basin with the marinade.
  • Blend for breading:
  • Breading and all of the KFC secret spices should be whipped together.
  • 4.5 tablespoons of marinade should be added to the flour mixture. Rub in with your fingers to make several lumpy pieces the size of peas throughout (this creates extra super crunchy craggy bits).
  • Spread out in a skillet or small dish (easier to work with).
  • Cooking preparation (follow the steps in the correct order):
  • Place rack on tray and preheat oven to 80°C/175°F to maintain chicken's warmth. (Note 3) Pour oil into a large, heavy-bottomed pot and fill it to a depth of 6 cm (2.5") (my 26 cm (10.5" cast iron pot = 1.75L/quarts oil, Note 4) Heat oil over medium to medium-high heat to 180°C (350°F) and try to maintain the temperature as best you can (Note 5).
  • Breading:
  • in this order: Start cooking the thighs and drumsticks, then the wings, and finally the breast. (Note 6).
  • Place a piece of chicken in flour after dipping it in the remaining marinade.
  • Apply thoroughly, pushing firmly to adhere. Place on platter.
  • Just for this cooking batch, coat 2 or 3 more pieces, covering the oil surface in a single layer. Note 7: Fried foods
  • Place the chicken in the oil carefully; although it will bubble vigorously, it won't spit.
  • Once the chicken is added, the temperature of the oil should fall to 150°C or 300°C; set the heat to this level.
  • To help the crust adhere to the chicken skin, DO NOT TOUCH the chicken for two minutes. After that, you can flip them if you wish, but the oil should be deep enough that you don't need to.
  • Cook thighs and drumsticks for 8 minutes (wings for 5) or until deep golden brown and internal temperature reaches 75°C/167°F at the thickest section.
  • Fry breast for 6 minutes, or until internal temperature is 65°C/150°F at the thickest section (time depends on size).
  • Place on rack, then reheat in oven. Repetition is key, coating each batch of chicken right before cooking.
  • Serve right away!
  • Traditional sides include cole slaw, KFC-style potato & gravy, grilled or steaming corn, soft rolls or cornbread, fries, and southern baked beans.


I purchase bone-in chicken thighs, drumsticks, and wings for convenience. Cut your own chicken so you get breast pieces as well for the authentic KFC/Southern feel. Make sure to leave the skin on and the bone in. Slice the breast in half through the bone.
The thighs and breast should be cut into smaller pieces, ideally 200g/7oz or less, to guarantee thorough cooking and reduce the need for bother when finishing them in the oven. I successfully cooked 220g/7.7oz bone-in thighs. If they weigh 250g/8.8oz or more, you must either cook them in the oil until extremely dark golden or finish in the oven.
If you can't find any, you can create your own buttermilk. White vinegar, 1 teaspoon, milk, stir, wait 10 minutes. may curdle. Use in accordance with the recipe.
The temperature at which chicken will remain warm, maintain its crispy exterior, but not further cook the meat within is known as the "keeping chicken warm" temperature. To keep the underside of the chicken really crispy, a rack is necessary.
I feel secure using a large cast iron pot as a frying utensil. Use a wok for the best oil efficiency; the same amount of frying will use around 30% less oil. I congratulate you if you own a deep fryer!
Use a thermometer or surface scanning thermometer to determine the temperature of the oil. If you don't have one, try dropping a piece of breading into the pan to see if it sizzles right immediately but doesn't burn too rapidly. Alternatively, insert a bamboo chopstick into the bottom of the pot and touch it; if bubbles appear, the oil is ready.
Depending on the size of the chicken, how well the pot retains heat, how stable the stove is, etc., cooking times may vary. To check internal temperature, a thermometer is preferable. The cook times given in the recipe are based on the supplied chicken weights and the heat temperatures for the oil, assuming a cast iron pot is used. As a guide, consider the color of the crust.
Thighs and drumsticks should be cooked together first and at the same time. After wings, finish with the breast. Reason: Breast cooks more quickly in a preheated oven while dark meat retains more juice.
When batch cooking, avoid coating all the chicken and leaving it unattended for the duration of the cooking process; otherwise, the crust will become soggy.
Oil recycling - I don't deep fry as often because I detest the oil waste! I use the straightforward cornflour/cornstarch approach from Cooks Illustrated to clean my oil. Once cleaned, I can usually reuse oil three times. Unfortunately, I discover that fried chicken can only be used one more. Due in part to the robust flavor of the ingredients and in part to the fact that you cook it for a solid 25 minutes, which uses a lot more oil than standard deep-frying recipes.
Notes on the breading mixture: While it may seem like a lot of pepper, it is essential to the KFC flavor and doesn't make the food spicy. Keep in mind that just a small amount of seasoning actually makes it onto each piece of chicken.
Simply add 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper to the breading for the hot and spicy version! There is more breading coating flour than you need, so you'll throw out around 1 cup of it. That will give it a wonderful buzz (but won't blow your head off). As wasteful as it may sound, I've tried using less, but the last parts end up being sloppy or difficult. As a result, I gave in and increased the amount of breading since the crust is the star of this recipe.
Source of the recipe: Based on my testing, several procedures were modified from Kenji's recipe on Serious Eats. Spices are part of my "11 secret herbs and spices" KFC imitation blend.
