An Easy Recipe

For many years, I have wanted to know how they make the KFC seasoning salt for their hot chips/french fries. After years of wanting to know how to make this salt, I finally gave it a go and tried a few different things. I was quite impressed with the outcome, so I thought I would share it.

All you will need is a little onion salt, garlic salt, chicken stock, and ordinary salt.

  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons onion salt
  • 1 tablespoon chicken stock, optional
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt


  1. Now this recipe is very simple. All you need to do is combine all of your ingredients in a bowl, give it a mix, and it is good to go.

If you want to put it in a salt shaker, it is a good idea to put a handful or so of rice in with the chicken salt to stop it from absorbing moisture and starting to clump up. Check out my video below for a little more information.
