The KFC secret recipe is out. Well, sort of.
Col. Harland Sanders' handwritten recipe of 11 herbs and spices was removed Tuesday from safekeeping at Kentucky Fried Chicken's corporate offices for the first time in decades. The temporary relocation is allowing KFC to revamp security around a yellowing sheet of paper that contains one of the country's most famous corporate secrets.
The brand's top executive admitted that his nerves were aflutter despite the tight security he lined up for the operation.
