"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." 6 cups Crisco cooking oil

1 each egg, beaten

2 cups milk

2 cups all-purpose flour

4 Tbsp. salt

2 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. MSG (you can use Accent) 2 each frying chickens with skin, each cut into 6 pieces

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.


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 ½ Tbsp. of salt. Be aware, however, that using MSG produces the best clone of KFC's Fried Chicken. Makes: 12 pieces From: "Top Secret Recipes Cookbook Posted by: Debbie Carlson
