"In 1983, in his book BIG SECRETS, author William Poundstone hired a laboratory to analyze a dry sampling of the spice mixture. The surprising discovery was that instead of identifying eleven herbs and spices, the analysis showed only four ingredients: flour, salt, pepper and monosodium glutamate, a flavor enhancer. The cooking procedure is believed to be the other half of the secret. Colonel Sanders became famous for using a pressure cooker shortly after its invention in 1939."
Pour the oil into a pressure cooker and heat over medium heat to about 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the egg and milk. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining four dry ingredients. Dip each piece of chicken into the milk until fully moistened. Roll the moistened chicken in the flour mixture until completely coated.
In groups of four or five, drop the covered chicken pieces into the oil and lock the lid in place. When steam begins shooting through the pressure release, set the timer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, release the pressure and remove the chicken to paper towels or a metal rack to drain. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
Note: If you prefer not to use MSG, you may substitute an additional 1/2 Tbsp. of salt. Be aware, however, that using MSG produces the best clone of KFCs Fried Chicken.
Makes: 12 pieces

Emmi_lou92 1 year agoLoved this recipe! Didn't use msg but still tasted just like a KFC!!! Yum
jjbell820 1 year agoExcellent! I don't buy that all you need is S&P with MSG. I put seasoning salt, pepper and paprika and also used buttermilk in my wash.
Hamster04 1 year agoIt was nice. I took the reviews advice, and didn't, add all the salt, may put the whole lot in next time as I didn't,t find it salty at all. a good recipe
brandirenee89 2 years agoThis recipe was very good. It did taste a little too salty, that's easy to alter though.
Thorfinn911 2 years agoTried today! Excellent! Since you can use better cuts of chicken, it's even better than KFC!

chefdoc2 4 years agoWhen I worked at KFC, the chicken came in a bag with spices etc. Then we had to put in a steel bin in the walkin and rotate every so often for hrs before. The orginial recipe ws cooked in a closed vat. The crispy was cooked in open vat.
