Pillsbury Fried Chicken


It's not a recipe from Pillsbury but one ingredient from them. I have a Pillsbury coating mix sitting in my pantry for sometime now. It was free from the Pillsbury pancake flour I bought. I was curious how it tasted but I did not want to follow the instructions how to use it. As for my experience in the past, breading mix usually has a high content of sodium. If you use it like the instructions say. The chicken is very salty on the outside but bland inside. And I don't like that. What I did, is to marinate 3 chicken leg quarters, weighing about 800-900 grams, each cut into three & pierced for several times with a fork, with a teaspoon each of iodized coarse salt & finely ground black pepper, a good dash of garlic powder and half a tablespoon of liquid seasoning or you can also use light soy sauce, whatever you prefer. Set aside for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile heat the pan with lots of cooking oil, about two cups. In a paper bag, put 6 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon of paprika and 3 tablespoons of Pillsbury coating mix. Mix well until blended. Put the chicken, shake and tumble until chicken is fairly coated. Deep-fry in medium heat until golden brown. Drain in paper towels. Serve with catsup.
