This recipe is a fantastic copycat of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Juicy and filled with flavor from the perfect blend of herbs and spices, you'll save yourself a lot of money by cooking this at home.
Cooked using a pressure cooker is the secret to infusing the chicken with the seasonings throughout each and every piece. Pressure cooking also seals in the juices, so you'll get the same high quality juicy tender chicken as you would at a KFC restaurant. Serve with the coleslaw recipe and corn on the cob and you've got yourself a feast the Colonel himself would be proud of (at a fraction of the cost)!
