My reverse-engineered recipe for Hometown Buffet's 'Hand Breaded Fried Chicken' chicken yields enough seasoning for 6 batches fried chicken (for the single recipe version, see Hometown Buffet Fried Chicken (Copycat)). Mix 5 level tablespoons of this blend with 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour plus 1/4 cup cornstarch, for frying 8-10 pieces chicken. See Hometown Buffet Fried Chicken (Copycat) for frying instructions.
