It’s not just for frying!
Because Choice Batter® is a type of flour, you may use it for your other cooking needs.
Our baked chicken or pork chop recipe (below), is just one of the delicious dishes you can make with Choice Batter®.
General Instructions for Frying with Choice Batter®
Mix one cup of Choice Batter® in a bowl with 1 cup plus 1 Tablespoon of water and let stand for five minutes. Add one to two additional tablespoons of water depending on the desired coating thickness and stir*. Dip your favorite foods in Choice Batter® placing individually into a pre-heated deep fryer or electric skillet at (350°-375°c).
Have Fun! You can make Choice Batter® your own by experimenting with the liquid portion of the batter. Spice things up with a little hot sauce, add a citric bite to your batter using lemon juice or make your favorite beer batter onion rings.
Add an extra dimension to foods, by coating them in Choice Batter® first, then adding a dry coating of corn flake crumbs, crushed crackers or chips before frying. Doritos are our favorite.
|*Some foods coat better in a slightly thinner batter like French fried potatoes, sweet potatoes, zucchini and eggplant. If the batter is too thick, add small amounts of water until you achieve a great coating. If you added too much liquid, add a bit more of the Choice Batter® dry mix.|
Fried Chicken and Chicken Strips
You can make fried chicken or chicken strips by following the general frying instructions above. If you like a thinner coating on your fried chicken, just add an extra 1 to 2 tbsp of water before coating. Spice it up by adding your favorite hot sauce for dry crispy buffalo style wings.
