For marinade
  Water 8 Cup (128 tbs)
  Msg 2 Teaspoon
  Whole chicken 1 Small, cut up in 8 pieces
For brushing
  Vegetable oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Liquid smoke 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Soy sauce 1⁄4 Teaspoon
For seasoning
  All purpose flour 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Chicken bouillon powder 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Beef bouillon powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Coarse ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Crushed dried rosemary 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried basil 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried oregano 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1⁄8 Teaspoon

1. Dissolve the salt and MSG in the water to make the marinade (brine). Add the chicken, cover and chill for exactly 2 hours.
2. When the chicken has marinated, rinse each piece of chicken with water and blot dry. Whisk together the oil, liquid smoke, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Brush oil over one side of each piece of chicken.
3. Combine all of the ingredients for the seasoning in a small bowl. Sprinkle the seasoning over the oiled side of each piece of chicken, then flip each piece, brush with oil again and sprinkle on more seasoning.
4. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, or 325 degrees F if you have a convection oven. Brush some of the leftover oil solution onto an oven-safe grill pan or grill plate. Set the pan over medium heat, and when the oil begins to smoke, place the chicken skin-side-down on the pan. Cook the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes or until the skin begins to brown and grill marks form on the chicken, then flip the chicken and cook it for another 1 to 2 minutes. Pop the grill pan into the oven for 20 minutes, then flip each piece of chicken and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the surface of the chicken is golden brown, and the chicken is cooked through.

Tidbits: MSG is monosodium glutamate, a natural amino salt. It can usually be found where herbs and spices are stocked in your market. Accent Flavor Enhancer is one popular brand.
If you can't find the chicken and beef bouillon powder for this recipe, you can use bouillon cubes. Just crush the cubes into fine powder before measuring.

Thanks for sharing the secret. Now we can try out chicken as good as that of KFC. however , MSG is not good for health. Also, your recipe info says this is a side dish. What does this chicken dish complement best?

I eat a Paleo Life Style and really wanted a recipe that I could make that reminded me of the KFC grilled but without all the non Paleo ingedients. I made this recipe but I repalced the Veg Oil with Olive Oil the Flour with Almond Meal and the Salt with Sea Salt. I also removed the Liquid Smoke, MSG, Chicken and Beef bouillon and Soy sauce as I felt Sea Salt would be enough to open the taste buds and keep the flavor. I also did not use the Brine portion of the recipe since I did not have time to wait as I wanted to try it ASAP. I can only say YUMMY!!! I have made it twice in the last 5 days it is so good. I pan fried it in olive oil the first night, and used my Pancake Griddle the second time. My 4yr old son was lovin it and he hardly ever eats Chicken. Enjoy this recipe how ever you decide to make it, it is really as good as it gets. Thanx Todd!!!
