Dry Mixes in a Jar... Homemade KFC Copycat Coating

Dry Mixes... these mixes are not for canning, but may be stored in canning jars.

Homemade Kentucky Fried Chicken 
Copycat Coating
Found on chickensintheroad

Place all ingredients in blender, spice grinder or chopper “pulsing” 3-4 minutes to pulverize:

1 tablespoon rosemary 

1 tablespoon oregano 

1 tablespoon powdered sage 

1 teaspoon powdered ginger 

1 teaspoon marjoram 

1-1/2 teaspoons thyme 

3 tablespoons packed brown sugar 

3 tablespoons dry minced parsley 

1 teaspoon pepper 

1 tablespoon paprika 

2 tablespoons garlic salt/powder 

2 tablespoons onion salt/powder 

4 teaspoons powdered chicken bouillon (or 4 cubes mashed) 

1 package Lipton Tomato Cup-a-Soup Mix OR 1 Tablespoon tomato powder

Store in an airtight container so it will not lose potency.

Makes about 1-1/4 cups of mix.

To Prepare the Coating Mix:

Add 2 Tablespoons mix to 1 cup of flour, mixing well. I shake together in the bag I’m going to dip my pieces in. I’m not sure if you can find tomato powder in all grocery stores, some Amish stores do have it. But you can easily make your own. With a dehydrator and grinder, you can make virtually any powder you could think of.


  1. This looks wonderful. Is it calling for 2 tablespoons of garlic salt OR garlic powder?

    1. Yes, either/or... I'd go with powder myself. ~~Granny

  2. Thank you so much. A friend of mine orders KFC 2-3 times a month (maybe more) but is trying to cook more for herself. I expect she will be thrilled if I make this. I don`t eat birds myself but I don`t mind making it for her. I made her several meals in jars that she liked.
