LONG JOHN SILVERS DEEP FRY BATTER

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

4 Tbs. cornstarch

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 1/2 cups ginger ale, heated (1 min. in the microwave)

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the heated ginger ale and mix together until well combined.

2. Completely cover the fish, chicken, or shrimp in batter and deep fry in medium-high heated canola oil until golden brown.

NOTES

I like substituting chicken breast tenders for the full-sized breast fillets. Be sure to have some honey mustard dipping sauce on hand for those homemade chicken planks!
