We were invited to KFC's flagship store in Mascot NSW to see how the company makes its chicken first-hand. We were shown every step of the process; from how meat is stored and prepared to the various ways KFC keeps its "secret" herbs and spices out of the hands of suppliers. Read on for a full kitchen tour.

Last week, we discovered that KFC was advertising a 24-piece bucket of chicken on its 'Menu For One'. With a combined kilojoule count of 18,853kJ, this is obviously a terrible idea.
KFC has now removed the offending bucket from the menu and blamed the whole thing on a website error. However, that's not the only thing on the menu that needs changing. In short: the nuggs are out of control.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
If you read about cooking online, you've no doubt seen several listicles that tout the many uses of a single, humble chicken. At this point, you know what a chicken can do for you, so another overly-prescriptive, chicken-based meal plan seems unnecessary. My agenda here is very simple: the next time you buy a whole chicken, I want you to poach it.
Last night, I was perusing KFC Australia's online menu for potential Takeaway Truths when I stumbled across something that frightened me. Under 'Menu For One', KFC lists a chicken bucket. It comprises 21 pieces of Original Recipe totalling 18,853 kilojoules. What the hell, KFC?
The recipe for KFC chicken used to be a closely guarded secret. However, a former KFC employee recently leaked the alleged "11 secret herbs and spices" to the world - and after extensive testing, the recipe checks out.
This video shows you how to make bona fide KFC chicken at home. (The good news is, you probably have most of the ingredients in your cupboard already.)
Some people prefer sweet foods, others savoury. Sweet potato is equipped to handle both. Not only are these babies the perfect base for all sorts of fillings, they provide a bit more flavour (and nutrients) than their paler counterparts, and can be enjoyed morning, noon, and night. Here are three delicious options for breakfast, lunch and tea.
Chicken breasts are not very exciting, but they are a versatile protein with a pretty healthy image, and for that reason people tend to buy and cook a lot of them. Unfortunately, their lopsided, teardrop shape makes them a pain to cook well, and one can end up with a piece of meat that is juicy but flavourless on one end, and dry and charred on the other.
Last week, egg producer Snowdale Holdings was penalised A$1 million for falsely labelling their eggs as free-range. Snowdale, one of the biggest producers in the Australian market, owns brands including Eggs by Ellah, Swan Valley Free Range, and Wanneroo Free Range.
Given the significantly higher prices generally charged for free-range eggs, you could be forgiven for having doubts over what you’re getting in the supermarket. Even when egg cartons are legally accurate, the government definition of “free range” might not mean what you think it does.
State Of Origin Game 2 kicks off this Wednesday. Whether you're hosting a game night or just watching solo, do yourself a favour: forgo the usual cheap pizza and make these delicious chicken wings instead.
It's the news every takeaway fan has been waiting for (and every chicken has been dreading): KFC is launching a home delivery service! From next month, the fast food giant will trial a home delivery service in partnership with Foodora, bringing its famous fried chicken and hot chips straight to Aussie doors. Here's everything you need to know.
Frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts may not be the sexiest piece of meat on the market, but there's no denying their convenience and affordability. Though they lack pizzazz on their own, you can jazz 'em up without too much trouble. Honestly, my biggest chicken challenge was never getting them to taste good, but remembering to take them out of the freezer the night before I intended to cook them.
Have you ever noticed how McDonald's Chicken Mcnuggets come in a handful of suspiciously similar shapes? (The one with the protruding nubbin in every pack is usually the giveaway.) Turns out there are four distinct forms of McNugget: the bell, the ball, the boot and the bow tie/bone. Here's how they are made.
If you follow the world of stunt food, you most likely saw Taco Bell's Naked Chicken Chalupa, a taco-like creation where the shell is made of crispy chicken, rather than the "usual" chalupa wrapping. Sadly, Taco Bell will be removing the protein-wrapped delicacy from their menus sometime in March, and Australia doesn't have Taco Bell anyway. But don't let that get you down; you can make your own.
