YUM! It was exactly what I was looking for. I used it on skinless boneless thighs (cubed). Then, I coated the fried chicken pieces with General Tso's sauce. It was better than take out. My kids ate them plain dipped in ketchup and said it was better that fast food chicken nuggets. I only added a couple of tbsp of water to the batter. Thank you.

Excellent. Yes I agree with other reviews a 1/2 cup of water did the trick. Also addded 1/2 teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning to dry ingredients to fry Sole filets and sprinkled with Lemon Pepper after. Turned out FANTASTIC! Thanks, Pressurecooker.

This recipe is incorrect with the amount of water to use.. I made it as is, and it turned into a lump of flour and starch. So I added another 1/4 cup of water, and it looked and did what it should do.. so use 1/2 cup of water, then what it says..

This is a great recipe for my family. I increased the water by a 1/4 cup. Beer works nicely instead of water. Forget take-out! My family loves this recipe with seafood, chicken and vegetables. Thank you so much for posting this recipe!

The recipe, if made as directed, makes playdough, not a usable batter. After modifying it to make it thinner so it can be used, produced a very average coating. Definitely won't repeat.

Awsome, batter was really crispy and light, however I did increase the water and the cornfour both by a quarter cup, that achieved the desired consistency....?

Awesome! I used beer instead of water and I also found that the 1/4 cup listed doesn't work you need at least a 1/2 cup if not more. My wife could not stop raving about it.. She wants to try it with onion rings!

Is it suppose to be as thick as biscuit batter? How is this suppose to cover 4c veggies/ 1lb meat?
