The specific details of the secret recipe of herbs and spices are shrouded in secrecy, even among the suppliers who produce and blend it. Multiple suppliers are involved in the process, bound by strict secrecy agreements, and none of the individual suppliers know the entire formula. To further safeguard the secret recipe, KFC does not identify the suppliers involved in producing and blending the recipe.
Colonel Harland Sanders created the now-famous Original Recipe in 1940, and it hasn't changed since. While Sanders' Original Recipe fried chicken is a mainstay of the KFC menu, the world's most popular chicken restaurant chain is also giving the Original Recipe a modern makeover, by introducing Original Recipe Strips. The new product combines the home-style taste that America knows and loves with the innovation of KFC's popular boneless chicken strips.
