Kentucky Fried Chicken has bought a lawsuit against a Kentucky couple that claim to have found the original secret recipe made famous by the fastfood chain.

Tommy and Cherry Settle now living in the house that belonged to KFC founder Colonel Harland Sanders, discovered a handwritten recipe believed to be penned by the colonel himself over half a century ago, while clearing out the house.
The commercial recipe for the “finger-lickin’ chicken” is a closely guarded secret at the fastfood chain and KFC are now demanding that they return the discovered recipe back to the company. The case continues, but KFC is adamant that its secret will not fall foul of the discovery.
