KFC Secret Recipe Being Moved

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The secret at KFC will be out today, sort of.

Colonel Harland Sanders' handwritten fried chicken recipe blending those 11 herbs and spices is going to be moved from its home in a locked file cabinet inside a vault to an undisclosed location. After KFC headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky, modernizes the recipe's permanent hideaway, it will be returned.

The recipe has been in the file cabinet for more than 20 years.

Ex-New York City police detective Bo Dietl has been hired to protect the recipe, which will be tucked away in a briefcase handcuffed to him when it is whisked away by armored car.

The 68-year-old concoction for the colonel's Original Recipe fried chicken is regarded as KFC's crown jewel.
