    JustaQT's Note:

    After he perfected his original he made a crispy recipe that was marinated first then fried the conventional way. This one is double dunked into the coating to give it its great taste.

    1. 1
      Trim any excess skin and fat from the chicken pieces.
    2. 2
      Preheat the shortening in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees.
    3. 3
      Combine the beaten egg and milk in a medium bowl.
    4. 4
      In another medium bowl, combine the remaining coating ingredients (flour, salt, pepper and MSG).
    5. 5
      When the chicken has marinated, transfer each piece to paper towels so that excess liquid can drain off.
    6. 6
      Working with one piece at a time, first dip in egg and milk then coat the chicken with the dry flour mixture, then the egg and milk mixture again, and then back into the flour.
    7. 7
      Be sure that each piece is coated very generously.
    8. 8
      Stack the chicken on a plate or cookie sheet until each piece has been coated.
    9. 9
      Drop the chicken, one piece at a time into the hot shortening.
    10. 10
      Fry half of the chicken at a time (4 pieces) for 12-15 minutes, or until it is golden brown.
    11. 11
      You should be sure to stir the chicken around halfway through the cooking time so that each piece cooks evenly.
    12. 12
      Remove the chicken to a rack or towels to drain for about 5 minutes before eating.
    13. 13
      Note: I suggest (CopyCat) Kentucky Fried Chicken Marinade #75408.

      This makes a great crispy fried chicken. Easy to make. Take it from someone who hates to fry chicken.

      Amazing!! I tried this recipe out on the boyfriend and now he begs me to make it! It's a new family favorite.

      I have tried this both with and without the marinade, and it makes a significant difference. Delicious either way, but I'd highly recommend going the extra mile and following both recipes. Thanks for posting!!
