Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • springandfall on January 03, 2019

    I don't have the 11" straight-sided pan called for in this recipe; it's an odd size. A 10" pan allows insufficient room for the chicken, but a 12" pan would make the oil too shallow. I suggest either using less chicken and a 10" pan (in which case you could reduce the amount of coating and slightly reduce the oil) or use a 12" pan and a little more oil. Not having anticipated how important this was, I ended up frying the chicken in two batches in a smaller pan. It was still fine, but there was a lot of opening and closing of the oven, trying to determine which chicken pieces were done, since they hadn't all gone into the oven at the same time.
