Food Promise Throughout each day, our trained cooks freshly prepare fried chicken using the Colonel’s Secret Recipe of 11 herbs & spices. It takes more than 25 minutes to hand bread and cook our chicken before it’s ready for your bucket or boxed meal. That’s why KFC has the world’s best chicken.

  • We use 100 percent real chicken raised on U.S. farms.
  • Our chicken is USDA inspected for quality before it can be delivered to our kitchens.
  • Our chicken is free of added hormones and steroids. In fact, FDA regulations prohibit the addition of hormones in poultry in the U.S.
  • KFC U.S. works closely with suppliers to minimize the use of antibiotics important in human medicine at the farms that supply our restaurants. By 2017, antibiotics important in human medicine will only be used to maintain chicken health, and only under the supervision and prescription of a licensed veterinarian. The use of these antibiotics for growth promotion is not allowed.

DiversityDiversity is more than a philosophy at KFC; it is part of our founding “How We Work Together” principles. Our global culture is actively developing a workforce that is diverse in style and background, where everyone can make a difference.
