Spices to make chicken taste like KFC

In the wind and rain at netball last night I was told about about a yummy secret spice mix that you put on chicken and bake it to make it taste like KFC. Unfortunately with all the chaos of getting kids home and dried etc I've forgotten the name / chef (NZr I think).
Any ideas / recipes?
The person said they'd also sprinkled it on homemade wedges.
Otherwise will have to wait until next week and ask.

1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
One 3-pound chicken, cut into 6 pieces
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried sage
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons salt
2 Tablespoons paprika
1 Tablespoon onion salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 Tablespoons MSG

The author says: "What's the secret behind Colonel Sanders's famous eleven herbs and spices? To this day, his secret recipe has never been revealed,but this is a pretty close copy." --Ron Douglas

Combine the egg and buttermilk in a large bowl. Soak the chicken pieces in the mixture.

Add the flour to a separate bowl and fold in all the herbs and spices. Roll the chicken in the seasoned flour until completely covered.

Allow to fry until the chicken is golden brown and thoroughly cooked.

And Kob has this one, far easier and nicer than KFC especially with skinless chicken thighs with the bone still in extra nice chicken flavour.

Hint, When buying veges, put veges in larger bags, ideal to keep for recipes like this one, LOL. And try mixing flours like a bit of wholemeal and plain.

mine is a nice one
in a bag mix the following 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs,1 cup of plain flour,3 teaspoons of chicken stock,1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg,1/2 teaspoon of curry powder. cover (about 6 to 8) chicken pieces in a drizzle of oil mix around then drop into bag and shake mix over them, take out place on baking tray and bake for 1-1&1/2 hours on 180 (c) (Personal note - May require turning after 50 minutes, improves the baking).

I use this recipe without the MSG & done in the air fryer, it's good.
I vary it & sometimes add a couple of slices of bread whizzed into crumbs. I make a larger quantity & freeze the balance.

Thanks everyone.
It turns out it was the Annabel Langbein's "8 secret spice mix" for "southern style baked chicken".
