Popeye's Fried Chicken Recipies
3 cups self-rising flour
1 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons seasoned salt
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 package dry Italian salad dressing mix
1 package onion soup mix - (1 1/2 oz)
1 package spaghetti sauce mix - (1/2 oz)
3 tablespoons sugar
3 cups corn flakes -- crush slightly
2 eggs -- well beaten
1/4 cup cold water
4 pounds chicken -- cut up
Combine first 9 ingredients in large bowl.
Put the cornflakes into another bowl.
Put eggs and water in a third bowl.
Put enough corn oil into a heavy roomy skillet to fill it 1-inch deep.
Get it HOT!
Grease a 9- by 12- by 2-inch baking pan.
Set it aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Dip chicken pieces 1 piece at a time as follows:
Into dry coating mix.
Into egg and water mix.
Into corn flakes.
Briskly but briefly back into dry mix.
Drop into hot oil, skin-side-down and brown 3 to 4 minutes on medium-high.
Turn and brown other side of each piece.
Don't crowd pieces during frying.
Place in prepared pan in single layer, skin-side up.
Seal with foil, on 3 sides only, leaving 1 side loose for steam to escape.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes removing foil then to test tenderness of chicken.
Allow to bake uncovered 5 minutes longer to crisp the coating.
Leftovers refrigerate well up to 4 days.
Do not freeze these leftovers.
Leftover coating mix (1st 9 ingredients) can be stored at room temperature in covered container up to 2 months.
