    JustaQT's Note:

    The Original Recipe is not packaged in three different places. The way it is cooked and the process makes it taste like it has eleven herbs and spices when in reality there is not. The way it is done in the restaurant is using dried eggs and milk in the flour along with a box of breading salt and the seasoning bag and a bag of breading flour.

      This does not give proper instruction you can not use a pressure cooker...this is meant for a pressure fryer....never use a pressure cooker to deep fry under pressure

      We love this recipe. The only thing I changed was dropped the salt down to 1 Tablespoon & no MSG. Also, if you use boneless, skinless chicken you can use a regular deep fryer. Do everything as the recipe says, then put 2 - 3 tenders in the deep fryer. Flip them over after about 3 minutes and wait until they float. We have this at least once a month because we like it so well.
