Whenever I have tempura at a restaurant it is always so light and crispy, the boxed store-bought stuff is okay providing you rush to the table within minutes to eat it or it gets soggy and soft, I have tryed many tempura recipes over my 35 years of cooking I have to say this one is the best, it produces a very light crispy coating that holds up well --- I have used this to make tempura veggies and froze them after deep-frying in this batter, and just reheated them in a small amount of oil, also with bite-size meaty pieces of fish and with about 15 large peeled shrimp cooked about 3 minutes --- remember the tempura must sit out at room temperature for 10 minutes before using, If you want to make a double recipe of tempura, then make two exact recipes using two separate bowls, do NOT double the recipe and make it all in one bowl it will not work --- use only rice flour for this anything else will not work the same and use only a light-coloured beer.
A copy of the popular sandwich from Wendy's. The recipe comes from www.topsecretrecipes.com, and was created by Todd Wilbur. It can also be found in his book "Even More Top Secret Recipes."
To make this a little healthier, just broil the sandwiches in the oven.
This is a copy cat recipe from Todd Wilbur and his Top Secret Recipe site. I made these for my husband and I and they are just like the ones from Chili's. So good, I am sure you will enjoy them. It is a little time consuming but worth every second.
Don't bother ordering Chinese chicken balls make these at home they are just as good if not even better and the sweet and sour sauce is the same as what is served at your Chinese restaurant!-- these are a great weekend snack or can be served as appetizers, if you want some extra flavor to you chicken batter feel free to add in some garlic or onion powder or spices of choice --- this makes a large amount so you may want to reduce the chicken ball batter amount by half (using 4 chicken breasts) --- NOTE: the sauce recipe is one you may have to make a few times before you get the consistancy and sweetness to your liking, 1 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup lightly packed brown will give you a sweet sauce you may reduce the white sugar amount by a few tablespoons
