The recipe


Joe Ledington is the nephew of Colonel Harland Sanders, the person who created KFC's fried chicken recipe.

Over the years, KFC has made a big deal of keeping the recipe a closely guarded secret. They even went as far as suing a couple who claimed they had found a copy of the recipe.

67 year old Ledington met with Jay Jones, Chicago Tribune writer at the Harland Sanders Cafe and Museum in Corbin, Kentucky, to discuss the newly restored restaurant there.

Ledington went through the pages of an old family, reminiscing about his uncle. When he got to the last will and testament of his aunt, things got really interesting.

A handwritten note on the back page of the will, seemed to list a recipe. Jones then asked him if it could be the recipe.

When Jones followed up with Yum! Brands, the parent company of KFC parent to ascertain this recipe. They didn't confirm nor deny the claims.
