KCF Chicken Secret Recipe?

I was told this is the KFC recipe... since I recently found out my kids LOVE that chicken I figured I better look into it.  No way this will be tagged "healthy" but I guess you could make your own adjustments.  ;)

Here is what I found:

1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
3 beaten eggs
4 tablespoons oil - if you don't have a deep fryer

For the coating
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons paprika
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon tarragon
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 teaspoon celery salt

1. Sift together all the coating ingredients and place in a clean plastic bag. Coat each chicken piece first with the beaten egg, then with the flour mixture in the bag. Make sure you coat each piece completely with the flour.
2. Of course this is where you drop that chicken in your deep fryer but if you don't have one, this is the plan.  Heat the 4 tbs of oil in a skillet. Brown the chicken in oil slowly, uncovered. Once browned, cover the skillet and keeping frying on a very gentle heat until the chicken is fully cooked. Place on paper towels to drain out the excess oil.

Let me know what you think. Does this taste like KFC?
