Ingredients:  
2-3 lb cut-up chicken pieces
1 quart water
3 Tbsp salt (for soaking)
1 c milk
1 egg, beaten
2 c flour, 1 tsp Accent (MSG), 1 Tbsp salt, 1 tsp pepper
Soybean Oil (no substitutions) for frying

Directions:
Directions:
Allow chicken to soak in salted water for half hour.
Mix egg and milk in a bowl. Mix flour, Accent, salt, and pepper in another bowl. Preheat deep fryer to 350 or place 3/4 inch oil in skillet set on medium.
Dry chicken with paper towels. Dredge in flour mixture, place in milk/eggs, and then back in flour mixture. Do this one piece at a time, making sure that there is total coverage over entire surface of chicken in each step.
KFC uses pressure cookers to fry chicken, which is risky to do at home. If you are using a deep fryer, fry a few pieces at a time for 20 minutes, covered, turning occasionally. Likewise, if pan frying, cook, covered, turning occasionally for about 30 minutes. As always with chicken, check the middle of a large piece to check if cooked.
Allow to drain on paper towels when cooking is complete.

Personal Notes:
Additional seasonings may be added to flour mixture if wanted.
