The Recipe From Hell

I had to chuckle when I saw this recipe for "Popeye's Fried Chicken". This has to be an early April Fool's joke?

ingredients:

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 (1.5 ounce size) dry onion soup mix
1 package (.5 ounce size) spaghetti sauce mix
3 tablespoons sugar
3 cups Corn flakes cereal, crushed slightly
eggs, well beaten
1/4 cup cold water
4 pounds chicken, cut up

directions:

Combine first 9 ingredients in large bowl. Put the cornflakes into another bowl. Put eggs and water in a 3rd bowl. Put enough corn oil into a heavy roomy skillet to fill it 1" deep. Get it HOT! Grease a 9x12x2 baking pan. Set it aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dip chicken pieces 1 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. 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 in foil, on 3 sides only, leaving 1 side loose for steam to escape. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes removing foil then to test tenderness of chicken. Allow to bake uncovered 5 minutes longer to crisp the coating.

  1. This is what I mean about finding an alleged copycat recipe that you can tell it's bunk just by looking at it haha. That is the peril with recipes, taste is relative and it's more open to interpretation than the Bible itself haha
