Fried Chicken Coating Mix

 Fried Chicken Coating Mix
Meet the Cook: My family - husband and our two sons, 11 and 8 - tell me they'd like me to fix chicken with this coating mix all of the time. I've had the recipe for years. In fact, I can't remember how I got it...just my many additions and deletions. -Dawn Supina, Edmonton, Alberta
