Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 45 min

Ingredients
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons seasoned salt
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 package Italian-style salad dressing mix
  • 1 1/2 ounces package onion soup mix
  • 1/2 ounce package spaghetti sauce mix
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 cups corn flakes, crushed slightly
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 4 pounds chicken, cut up
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. Combine first 9 ingredients in large bowl.
     
  3. Put the cornflakes into another bowl.
     
  4. Put eggs and water in a 3rd bowl.
     
  5. Put enough corn oil into a heavy large skillet to fill it 1" deep. Turn on heat and get oil to hot temperature.
     
  6. Grease a 9x12x2-inch baking pan. Set it aside.
     
  7. Dip chicken pieces one piece at a time as follows: 1) Into dry coating mix. 2) Into egg and water mix. 3) Into corn flakes. 4) Briskly but briefly back into dry mix. 5) Drop into hot oil, skin-side-down and brown 3 to 4 minutes on medium high heat. Turn and brown other side of each piece. Don't crowd pieces during frying.
     
  8. Place chicken pieces in prepared pan in single layer, skin-side-up. Seal in foil, on 3 sides only, leaving 1 side loose for steam to escape.
     
  9. Bake for 35-40 minutes, removing foil then to test tenderness of chicken.
     
  10. Allow to bake uncovered 5 minutes longer to crisp the coating.

 

Note: Leftovers refrigerate well up to 4 days. Do not freeze leftovers. Leftover coating mix (first 9 ingredients) can be stored at room temperature in covered container up to 2 months.
