"It's ok but something is missing. It seemed quite bland. Maybe more spices or salt would help. Not near as good as KFC."

"OMG! SO easy and delicious! My go-to -recipe for sure. I adjusted the spices and only added a pinch of regular salt since I am sodium/salt sensitive. Two tablespoons garlic salt is a bit much."

"Sodium is way too high. 2 pieces has a day's worth. Sub granulated garlic for the garlic salt."

"I really liked the batter. But I have to ask, what is the water for? I'm not a savvy chef and follow directions because I have to. I was expecting milk or something, but the egg and water was so runny. Otherwise, I thought it was really good."

"When I was a manager for KFC, we made Extra Krispy by "double-dipping". Floured (with the "secret recipe"), then dipped into the milk mixture, then floured again before deep frying."
