Make Our Own: KFC Style Chicken Coating

The Colonel's secret is safe, but this MOO chicken coating mix is a pretty good replica. Don't be put off by the quantity, it keeps for months in a jar in the pantry.  Use it to coat chicken pieces, including fillets or fish and for a tasty change coat thick beef sausages and serve them over mash with a gravy. Delicious!

2 cups plain flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
2 tbsp celery salt
2 tbsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp dry mustard (I like Keens)
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp garlic salt
6 tbsp chicken stock powder
8 tbsp sweet paprika *

Use a balloon whisk or a fork to combine ingredients, being sure they are evenly distributed. Store in an air-tight container. 

To use:
Dip chicken pieces into plain flour, then either beaten egg or milk and then into breadcrumbs. Dip into egg or milk again and roll in KFC mixture. Chill in fridge for 30 minutes. Spray  a pizza tray or similar baking tray with cooking spray and spread chicken pieces on tray. Spray chicken with olive oil spray (can use vegetable oil)  and bake in a moderate oven 25 - 30 minutes until chicken is cooked through and coating is golden brown and crispy.

*Note:  Yes, 8 tablespoons paprika is correct. The paprika gives the mix it's colour and adds the base flavour.
