    1. 1
      Dissolve 1/3 cup salt and 1 tablespoon MSG in 8 cups water. Add chicken and marinate for 2 hours. Remove chicken from brine, rinse with water and blot dry.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a deep fryer to 300°F.
    3. 3
      Make the breading by combining all ingredients in a large bowl.
    4. 4
      In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then stir in the milk.
    5. 5
      When the oil is hot, dip each piece of chicken in the egg and milk mixture and then press into the breading. Toss each chicken piece in the breading until well-coated, let chicken sit for 2 minutes in the breading, shake off the excess breading and fry 2 to 4 pieces at a time (or whatever your fryer can hold) for 18 to 20 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown. Drain chicken on a rack for at least 5 minutes before serving.
    6. 6
      TIDBITS: If you want to keep the chicken warm until it's all cooked, place the fried pieces on a rack on a baking sheet and keep them in your oven set to 200°F.

      I have prepared this again, and decided to give it 5 stars instead of my original 4. While I admit I like my own copycat KFC recipe better, this is a darned good recipe, regardless. What impresses me is how Todd Wilbur got a recipe this good in 3 days (I watched the Top Secret Recipe episode) -- as opposed to the 3 years it took me to get mine right! I like how the MSG brings out an almost cinnamon flavor from the marjoram and ginger. Great job, Mr. Wilbur.
