Crunchy Chili Onion Rings

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by iris5555

Modified slightly from the April 2006 Bon Appetit. I found that the original quantities of milk and dry ingredients were about twice as much as needed so I halved those amounts.

First of all, I'm pleased to be the first to rate a very good recipe.After I had put the onion rings in the buttermilk,I realized there was alot of milk and coating mix so I repeated steps 3 and 4 to give the rings an "extra crunch".I don't have a deep fryer so I used an electric skillet set at 375º and that burned the first batch,cut it down to 325º and it seemed to work just fine.These rings went so well with Recipe#97203.These will be made again,Thank for posting."Keep Smiling:)"
