Coating Mix -- Like Kentucky Kernel Flour

This is a recipe I found around the internet when I was looking to copycat the Kentucky Kernel Flour which is what KFC uses for their coating. I wanted it low/no salt, so I switched out the salts for the powders and used tomato powder instead of the Lipton Soup Mix with a little more onion and garlic powders. It is very good and flavorful!

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 3/4 cup

Prep Time: 5 min  


1 tablespoon rosemary
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon powdered sage
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 1/2 teaspoons thyme
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons dry minced parsley
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
2 tablespoons garlic salt
2 tablespoons onion salt
2 tablespoons powdered chicken bouillon (or 4 cubes mashed)
1 pkg Lipton tomato cup of soup mix


Place all ingredients in blender, spice grinder or chopper “pulsing” 3-4 minutes to pulverize.

Store in an airtight container so it will not lose potency.

Makes about 1 1/4 cups.

To Prepare the Coating Mix:

Add 2 Tbsp mix to 1 cup of flour, mix well. I shake together in the bag I’m going to dip my pieces in.

To reduce the salt in this mix, I replace the salts with powders; replace the Lipton soup with 1 Tbsp tomato powder and add a little extra garlic and onion powders.
