My Healthy Homemade KFC Chicken Recipe

Healthy KFC Chicken Recipe

Spicy coated chicken

I bloomin’ love KFC. Sometimes that greasy fried chicken goodness is all you need to perk you up and make the world a better place – all that delicious spicy goodness! It’s also quick and easy to pick up a takeaway, rather than slaving over the stove.

I have even been known to eat an entire boneless family box for four between just me and one other person… absolutely no shame.

But along with that MSG-fuelled taste sensation also comes a boat load of fat so it’s really not great for you to eat KFC all the time. So I’ve created my very own Healthy Homemade KFC Chicken Recipe you can try at home if you want to cut down a little! With lots less calories than a traditional KFC, you can still get the taste sensation without any of the guilt.
