- 3 pounds Chicken pieces
- 1/2 cup Flour
- 1 package Dry Italian-style salad dressing
- 1 Egg
- 2 tablespoons Club soda
- 1 cup pancake mix -- (or more)
- 1 teaspoon Poultry seasoning
- 1 teaspoon Paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
- Oil for deep frying
Rinse chicken pieces; pat dry with paper towels. Mix flour with dry salad dressing mix & salt to taste.
Dip chicken pieces in this mixture and let sit for a couple of minutes. Beat egg and club soda; in another shallow bowl, blend pancake mix with poultry seasoning, paprika and pepper. Dip flour-coated chicken pieces in egg mixture, then in pancake mix mixture. Let sit on wire rack while heating deep fat to 375 degrees. Cook chicken pieces, turning once, until a rich golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Yield: 4 servings. Variation: To prepare EXTRA CRISPY CHICKEN, dip the chicken (after it has been coated in the pancake mixture) back in the egg mixture and again in the pancake mixture. Fry until done.
