Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.
Wow, such great flavor in every bite! The seasoning on the chicken I roasted in the Big Easy was fantastic, nicely herby. It’s a copycat of the roasted chicken Kentucky Fried Chicken used to have on the menu years ago. KFC dropped the idea, but now you can have that great taste at home. I believe KFC removed the skin from the chicken. I’ll leave the decision to do that or not to you.
I admit, I’m often pretty heavy-handed with seasonings, especially when it comes to chicken. I find that chicken needs all the flavor help it can get. This KFC roasted chicken seasoning clone is so good I put on a little extra. It would also be fantastic on a turkey cooked in the Char-Broil Big Easy.
KFC came out with roasted chicken to compete with Boston Market. Check out my copycats of Boston Market’s Tuscan herb chicken and Famous Dave’s Roasted chicken, also made on the Char-Broil Big Easy.

Hi there. I enjoy your site and trying your recipes. I recently printed your KFC recipe and I am confused. Step 6 says to brush with ‘the sauce’ but not sure what sauce you mean. There is no sauce in the recipe. Am I missing something?
Oh my goodness! How’d that get in there? I’m so sorry. I deleted the step you referenced, I must have copy-and-pasted from another Big Easy recipe and completely missed that.
LoL. Good to know and thanks for the quick reply. Will be trying it out soon!
Despite the boo-boo it’s a very good recipe. Let me know how you like it!
