KFC is opening its kitchens to customers.

The fast food restaurant is inviting fans to visit their kitchens and cook their own chicken.

Of course, we all love to treat ourselves to some fast food every now and again

But when we’re trying to save a bit of money and be good to our bank accounts, grabbing a few ingredients and giving it a try ourselves is always the go-to solution.

And when it all goes wrong and the spices just don’t mix in the right way, we end up getting hold of a supermarket alternative that will just about hit the spot.

The KFC Open Kitchen event will give customers an exclusive behind the scenes look into how the cooks whip up the classic Original Recipe chicken.
