Meet the Cook: My family - husband and our two sons, 11 and 8 - tell me they'd like me to fix chicken with this coating mix all of the time. I've had the recipe for years. In fact, I can't remember how I got it...just my many additions and deletions. -Dawn Supina, Edmonton, Alberta

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (2-1/2 to 3-1/2 pounds), cut up
  • Oil for frying

Directions

  1. Combine the first nine ingredients; store in an airtight container. Yield: 2-1/2 cups coating mix (enough for 3 batches of chicken).
  2. To prepare chicken: In a shallow bowl, beat eggs and milk. Place 3/4 cup coating mix in a large resealable plastic bag. Dip chicken into egg mixture, then add to the bag, a few pieces at a time; shake to coat.
  3. Heat 1/4 in. of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken on all sides; transfer to an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until juices run clear.
