In a recent interview, Colonel Sanders’ (of KFC/Kentucky Fried Chicken fame) nephew, Joe Ledington, may have accidentally revealed the spice blend they use to make the fast food giant’s fried chicken.  Apparently, he showed the interviewer a family scrapbook that contained a recipe with (you got it) 11 herbs and spices.  Since then, Ledington’s denied the occurrence.  On top of that, a rep for KFC said the recipe is incorrect.

Nonetheless, here’s the recipe the colonel’s nephew showed The Chicago Tribune (we’ve included the video, too):

Mix these 11 spices with 2 cups white flour:

2/3 tablespoon salt

1/2 tablespoon thyme

1/2 tablespoon basil

1/3 tablespoon oregano

1 tablespoon celery salt

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tablespoon dried mustard

4 tablespoons paprika

2 tablespoons garlic salt

1 tablespoon ground ginger

3 tablespoons white pepper
