We got so drunk on this one, trying to crack KFC’s Secret Recipe for Fried Chicken Fingers with Chicago’s ultimate comedy queen, Trannika Rex.

From seasoning, to breading, to the way it’s fried everyone seems to have strong feelings when it comes to fried chicken.

In the realm of legend is Colonel Sander’s secret blend of 11 herbs and spices, which Kentucky Fried Chicken claims is still the same recipe they use to this day.

The Colonel’s recipe is one of the most guarded secrets right up with with what’s in Coca Cola or. Needs joke!

But thanks to culinary sleuths on the Internet we may very well have figured it out.

Today we’re making fabulous fried chicken with some tasty twists on classic dipping sauces.

Joining us is the SHE-larious Trannika Rex, a drag queen whose name is 65 million years in the making. T-Rex is one of Chicago’s drag ringleaders- who encourages queens as they perform in her shows by throwing some loving shade their way.

As a kid growing up in Florida, Trannika loved eating chicken fingers and that’s still pretty much what she eats to this day.

honestly i dont think trixie and pearl arent friends or anything, they might not be the closest since they live and work in different cities, but i think thats just how trixie acts towards friends and ppl in general. Adore has said that she is a shady queen lol. Also i listened to podcasts of her, from how she described it, thats kinda like how the chicago queens (kimchi, trannika, shea) interact with each other.

It could be. Plus Pearl is a Chicago queen so she probably gets it. I don’t know because the way how she talks about Katya and how she talks about Pearl is SO different!

anonymous asked:

Who do you want on season 8? I want at least Kim Chi, Biblegirl, and mayhem miller

kim chi for sure, trannika maybe (she doesn’t perform so idk how well that would go) and biblegirl for sure… mayhem as well, she’s fierce.

anonymous asked:

Don't leave me hanging. What was that about Trannika shading Pearl? Aren't the chicago queens very close?

They are! (at least the neverland/berlin queens are). It wasnt even shade shade…it’s just like…she didn’t want pearl to win? I guess some ppl are closer to others but i’d still want pearl to win even if im closer to trixie, because she’s best friends w my best friends, you know? like trannika was always team trixie not pearl and for example sissy was team pearl all the way, not trixie. most of them supported both tho :) still, i dont think trannika meant harm or actual shade.

Spoiler alert! In what’s sure to be a controversial decision, RuPaul crowned Violet Chachki America’s Next Drag Superstar, over two audience favorites, Pearl and Ginger Minj.

Joining us today to talk about the upset, is our fried chicken goddess Trannika Rex, whose finger licking good episode of Cooking with Drag Queens is getting her lots of attention, mostly from people sending her pictures of their latest fried chicken creations or cheeky naked photos.
