I've been unable to find a suitable batter recipe that sticks to & holds up to frying. This batter is fantastic! I use it to coat chicken pieces to use for Orange Chicken where the cut pieces are deep fried ( I have no deep fryer & instead use a skillet filled with about 1/2" of cooking oil). It holds up extremely well. It reminds me very much of the type of batter used at restaurants (most specifically the chicken tenders at Chili's). Very tasty! I highly recommend this recipe in place of ANY batter recipe attached to whatever recipe you are using. Just the plain cooked nuggets of chicken are scrumptious! My family has become notorious for trying to sneak pieces while I'm cooking! I plan on continuing to experiment with this batter by trying it out with fish. I've also thought of adding some type of seasoning to the dry mix of ingredients. Possibly Celery Salt? Loads of possibilities.

Used this for a fish fry out at the lake after catching a bunch of great fish. Excellent batter!

This is a nice explanation of coating for chickent and fish/. It deserves a lot of credit mainly because its easy and concise, but still taste good enough to assume complex. A recipe doesnt have to be complicated to be good.

This recipe exceeded my expectations. I honestly thought that this would be bland and thought that I would have to add more seasoning. I refrained from doing that and I'm so glad that I did. I used this batter with fish and I seasoned the fish with salt only. This batter was extremely good. In my opinion, better than Long John's Silver!!!! This is simple and just perfect!!!!

Excellent batter. Pan fried fish approx. 5 minutes each side in about 1/2 inch vegetable oil. Nice golden brown color and nice crisp texture. As good if not better than any batter fried food I have made or tried anywhere else.
