Dan Fell's KFC style Chicken Coating


5 cups all-purpose flour

¼ cup paprika

2 Tbsp white pepper- fine grind

2 Tbsp garlic powder (not garlic salt!)

1 Tbsp fine salt

1 Tbsp ground ginger powder

1 Tbsp mustard powder

1 Tbsp celery salt

1 Tbsp black pepper – fine grind

2 tsp dried oregano – crushed fine

2 tsp dried thyme – crushed fine

Mix until well blended.

When making the fried chicken the coating recipe is mixed with self-rising flour in a 3-1 ratio.  For a whole chicken use 2 cups coating mix to 2/3 cup self-rising flour

Note on self-rising flour:

I make my own when I need it.

Using a whisk, mix 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder and ¼ teaspoon salt together until well blended. That is it!
