The term "broasted" was originally Boys-speak -- it was a trademark owned by a restaurant equipment company in Wisconsin, and was originally used only for products prepared in that company's pressure fryers. Harland Sanders, the Colonel himself, was as far as anyone has been able to determine, the first person to figure out how to fry chicken in a pressure cooker, and he patented his process in 1939. The Broaster Company basically poached his system after the patent ran out, tweaked it a bit to use their own trademarked equipment, and promoted "Broasted" as a brand name thru the midwest. Properly, Broasted chicken is only chicken made in a Broaster, and the company has spent a lot of money over the years trying to prevent its trademark from being genericized. KFC is "broasted." The Colonel just didn't think to call it that.
