You may be able to make KFC's famous chicken due to a recipe leak

One of the best kept secrets in history has now been let out.. 

Infamous Colonel Sanders became world famous after creating the popular Kentucky Friend Chicken (KFC) restaurants across the globe, bringing in thousands of patrons a year due to the addictive fried chicken.

The smell can be identified a small mile away from the eatery - however the familiar flavour hasn't been identified until now.

In the photographs above, Joe Ledington of Corbin poses with uncle Colonel Harland Sanders who perfected his chicken recipe in his Corbin cafe.

Joe takes us through his 1980 family photo album, including a photograph of the original recipe...

This makes us wonder whether the leak will put the KFC empire out of business.

Will you try out the recipe at home?
