  1. In one medium bowl, mix together 3 cups of flour, garlic salt, 1 tablespoon black pepper, paprika and poultry seasoning. In a separate bowl, stir together 1 1/3 cups flour, salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, egg yolks and beer. You may need to thin with additional beer if the batter is too thick.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Moisten each piece of chicken with a little water, then dip in the dry mix. Shake off excess and dip in the wet mix, then dip in the dry mix once more.
  3. Carefully place the chicken pieces in the hot oil. Fry for 15 to 18 minutes, or until well browned. Smaller pieces will not take as long. Large pieces may take longer. Remove and drain on paper towels before serving.

I tried this recipe after reading the reviews so I also doubled the spices, except for the black pepper. I also added a dash of tabasco to the wet ingredients. To boost the flavour of the chicke...

Wonderful recipe, very similar to my great-grandmother's old family recipe. I added seasoned salt instead of regular salt, added an extra tsp paprika and a tsp of chili powder, 1/4 tsp cumin and...

This was GREAT! Finally, I know how to make a chicken coating that doesn't fall off when frying and stays crispy! I even tried this on Chicken Fried Steak and it was delicious!

Delish!! I cooked this for dinner in the deep fryer and it was perfect! The crunch was fantastic! I used chicken breasts instead of chicken pieces. Very very yummy! This will replace my normal f...
