Copycat recipes for KFC fried chicken are available at Todd Wilbur's Top Secret Recipes and at Food.com. Todd Wilbur's recipe eliminates MSG from the mix, making the chicken arguably healthier than KFC's chicken. The recipe on Food.com attempts to match the KFC recipe as closely as possible.
Both recipes call for chicken to be marinated or brined for two to four hours. The next step is mixing the spices and flour together for the breading mixture. Both recipes use similar spices, but they differ in a few details. In Todd Wilbur's recipe, the chicken is dipped in an egg and milk mixture, breaded, and baked in the oven. The Food.com recipe calls for the chicken to be breaded directly from the marinade and then fried.
