KFC Potato Wedges (fries) CopyCat Recipe

Updated on February 28, 2011

KFC Potato Wedges CopyCat Recipe




Ingredients:

  • 5-7 Large potatoes, washed
  • 1 1/3 c flour
  • 1/2 c corn starch
  • teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 c butter milk


Directions:
1. Slice potatoes into wedges. Do this by slicing a potato in half lengthwise, then putting the flat side down. Slice in half lengthwise again, and then slice each of those pieces in half again. That should create perfect wedges.


2. Place the potato wedges into a bowl (preferably glass or ceramic) coat with half the seasoning (see below for recipe) and shake to coat. Then, microwave them for around 7 minutes on high, covered. Allow the wedges to cool (covered) for 10 minutes.


3. While the potatoes are cooling, you can put your batter together. Sift together flour, corn starch, and baking soda. Then mix in the butter milk. You should whisk or quickly stir this together until its just formed and smooth.


4. Once your batter is together, heat up your oil. Doesn't matter what kind of oil, deep fryer, or pan. Heat your oil to 350 degrees (Fahrenheit).


5. Coat a handful of potato wedges in the batter, and then quickly into the oil. (not too quickly, we don't want any burns!) 


6. Separate wedges and allow to cook for 4-6 minutes, or until golden. Drain wedges on a paper towel, immediately sprinkle them with the KFC spice mix



Serve with burgers, meatloaf, or just about anything. Even by themselves with some honey mustard, these wedges are to die for. Enjoy!

      Is it 1/3 cup of flour or 1 and 1/3 cups flour?? I just made it with 1 and 1/3 cups of flour and it came out like dough. Help!

      OK, so i threw out first batch of batter because the way it is written it looks like 1 and a 1/3 cups of flour. Well, I used 1/3 c of flour. OMG

      I make these almost every other week (they're amazing) and each time i have to remember that the flour should be 1/3 cup and not 1 1/3 cup ( thanks to a previous post). I wish the author would edit the recipe so that i don't accidently use the wrong amount.
