KFC-style hot wings?

One of my guilty pleasures is KFC hot wings. You know, those sauceless, crispy fried chicken wings with a good spicy kick?

Does anybody know how to make them (or a reasonable facsimile) at home? I've fried chicken many times, but I don't know how to get that kind of crisp and that kind of spice at the same time.
