Found in takeaway shops across Australia, it’s the condiment that gives hot chips an added joy, a mouth-watering bang and a zesty extra.
Chicken salt is adored by many, but perfecting the recipe at home comes with potentially catastrophic risk, as dousing a bowl of hot potato strips with anything but the delectable goodness is a waste of not only scrumptious food but precious time.
Fear not, just in time for Christmas the recipe behind the country’s best kept secret has finally been revealed.

Determined to pinpoint the exact makings of the perfect addition to a tasty bowl of hot chips, John DeCaux spent hours working on the perfect method.

The secret recipe revealed:
In a bowl add:
6 Tbsp table salt
3 Tbsp chicken stock
3 Tbsp garlic powder
3 Tbsp sweet paprika
1.5 Tsp white pepper
1 Tsp onion powder

Mr DeCaux was moved to identify a specialty recipe after the success of his take on’In-N-Out’s animal style fries’ which include a delicious coating of onion, cheese, a special sauce and the beloved chicken salt.
‘The recipe came about because I used chicken salt in another recipe and people all over the world wanted to know what it was,’
The Adelaide home chef said the response has so far been overwhelmingly positive not only from locals but across the world.
‘Australian have love it and are happy to be able to make their favourite seasoning.
