Dissolve 1/3 c salt and 1 tbl MSG in 8 cups water. Add chicken and marinate for 2 hours. Remove chicken from brine, rinse with water, and blot dry.
Heat oil in a deep fry to 300 degrees F.
Make the breading by combining all ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then stir in the milk.
When the oil is hot, dip each piece of chicken in the egg and milk mixture and then press into the breading. Toss each chicken piece in the breading until well coated, let chicken sit for 2 mins in the breading, shake off the excess breading and fry 2-4 pieces at a time (or whatever your fryer can hold) for 18-20 mins or until the chicken is golden brown. Drain chicken on a rack for at least 5 mins before serving.
If you want to keep the chicken warm until its all cooked, place the fried pieces on a rack on a baking sheet and keep them in your oven set to 200 degrees F.
