Copycat recipes...any luck??

Recently I've gotten cravings for a few restaurant dishes that were so good that I remember them! They are from chains, and I mostly prefer independent restaurants, so I rarely frequent them, but a few meals stood out. After a quick online search, I found "copycat" recipes for them, which I will make this weekend...rainy days are great for cooking!! Do you have any experience with restaurant makeover recipes?? Share your stories, and I'll update in a day or so, with recipes, if successful!! (And are there really 11 different herbs and spices??) No, I'm not trying to duplicate KFC, but saw a lot of copycats for it!!
