    The Spice Guru's Note:

    My reverse-engineered recipe for the classic 'Dixie Fry Original Recipe Natural Seasoned Coating Mix' yields 2 cups -- the equivalent of a 10 ounce, twin-pack box (although, I disagree about the "about 23 servings" listed under nutrition facts on the box -- I have listed 23 servings here for fair replication purposes). Half of this mixture may be stored in an airtight container for a second use. See steps 7 and 9 for approximate cooking times.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      NOTES: FOR BEST RESULTS DON'T OMIT OR SUBSTITUTE ANY INGREDIENT. SACO BRAND BUTTERMILK SOLIDS AND TRADEWINDS BRAND GROUND CELERY SALT ARE SOLD AT SMART & FINAL STORES. EGG YOLK POWDER CAN BE ORDERED ONLINE. IF OMITTING BUTTERMILK SOLIDS, NONFAT DRY MILK POWDER OR EGG YOLK POWDER -- (1) REPLACE OMITTED INGREDIENTS EQUALLY WITH CAKE FLOUR IN THE DRY BATTER INGREDIENTS, AND (2) REPLACE OMITTED INGREDIENTS IN "LIQUID FORM", AS AN EGG WASH BEFORE BREADING (1 1/2 CUPS BUTTERMILK OR NONFAT MILK, 1 BEATEN EGG). THERE WILL BE A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT COLOR RESULT FROM DIXIE FRY'S VERSION DUE TO THE ABSENCE OF BEET POWDER AND PAPRIKA OLEORESIN (COLORING AGENTS). SEE STEPS 7 AND 9 FOR DIXIE FRY'S APPROXIMATE COOKING TIMES.
    2. 2
      INTO the large bowl of a food processor, add all ingredients; PROCESS mixture for 10-15 seconds while tilting alternately for even blending. Mixture is now ready to use (retain 1/2 of mixture for a second use if desired (store in an airtight container). The following steps are the written directions from the Dixie Fry box.
    3. 3
      POUR (1 cup) Dixie Fry into medium plastic bag (or in a pan).
    4. 4
      MOISTEN chicken, pork, or seafood with water (or a whipped egg mixture).
    5. 5
      SHAKE 1 or 2 pieces at a time (or coat by rolling in pan).
    6. 6
      FRY METHOD (Spice Guru's note: I recommend using at least 1 cup cooking oil in a deep skillet, rather than the given amount): Pour 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in skillet. Cook over medium-low heat, uncovered, until golden and cooked through, turning occasionally.
    7. 7
      COOKING TIMES FOR FRYING METHOD: Chicken parts with skin and bone, 40 minutes; Boneless, skinless chicken breast, 20 minutes; Pork chops, 15 minutes; Fish fillet, 5-7 minutes.
    8. 8
      "NO OIL" BAKE METHOD (Spice Guru's note: I recommend using a light coat of vegetable oil on chicken before breading): Use baking pan. Spray no-fat cooking spray on pan. Bake, uncovered, until golden and cooked through, turning once.
    9. 9
      COOKING TIMES FOR BAKING METHOD: (at 400 F): Chicken parts with skin and bone, 45-50 minutes; Boneless, skinless chicken breast, 20 minutes; Pork chops, 40 minutes; Fish fillet, 5-7 minutes.
