  1. Trim any fat from chicken breasts and cut each in half lengthwise. Place chicken pieces in a bowl and sprinkle with seasoned salt, turning chicken pieces to season all sides.
  2. Place baking mix into a shallow bowl; pour water into a separate bowl. Gently press each seasoned chicken piece into the baking mix, dip quickly in water, and press chicken into baking mix again to coat thoroughly. Dip chicken once more quickly in water and coat a third time in baking mix. Tap off any loose baking mix.
  3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Deep-fry the chicken pieces in batches in the hot oil until the coating is crisp and brown and the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 6 minutes per batch. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

All of the batter falls off in the fryer! Not only was the chicken not coated after frying, but my fryer had batter all over it!

This is actually the first time I used a recipe from the site. I had no idea what it would taste like, or look like. Well it looks and tastes great! So much fun to try something randomly. I halved the recepie, just because I did not know what it would be like. Also I did not use as much oil as it says above, but it does say as needed :) Thanks!

I made this for my family (who are very picky) and everyone loved it! I wouldn't change a thing, but it is great as it is.

I loved this recipe! I have never fried chicken before and this came out wonderful. I did use a meat thermometer, but I was pretty much spot on for when it needed to be taken out. The recipe sounds really unorthodox and I was weary of it at first but it just follow along and you'll get a great result!

one star because the cooking time was off, you need about double the time to cook properly.
