    Pikake21's Note:

    I found this recipe on the KaukauTime blog. I haven't tried it yet, but wanted to save it since I miss the taste of Zippy's! Note: The secret of Zippy's Crispy Fried Chicken is the paprika and flour. The paprika and flour will make the chicken crispy without it being overly battered. Adding a bit of cornstarch will make it even more crispier if you prefer it this way. The more paprika you add will also make the chicken darker.

      I don't eat a lot of fried food, but I do LOVE fried chicken. I made this using 1 chicken breast, split. I made a full batch of coating mix, used about 1/3 of it, and stored the rest in a sealed jar for next time (and there will be a next time!) The coating was crisp and the meat was tender and juicy. The seasoning was perfect. Made for PAC Spring 2007.
