Do you love Long John Silver’s Chicken Planks like I do? Well, today I have a great copycat recipe to share with you. The trick is in mimicking the iconic Long John Silver batter.
This is the perfect solution, if the nearest Long John Silvers is at least an hour drive away.
Of course, the most important part of a successful copycat of Long John Silver’s chicken planks is in a nice crispy flavorful batter recipe. This chicken batter has great “puff” to it, and the reports I’m getting are positive on crispness and flavor.
Why not make a big batch of these copycat chicken planks this weekend to enjoy with your family. I’m sure it will make them very happy.
1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour.
4 tbsps of cornstarch.
½ tsp of baking soda.
½ tsp of baking powder.
½ tsp of salt.
1 ½ cups of heated ginger ale.
Mix together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl then heat the ginger ale for 1 minute in the microwave and mix with the dry ingredients until well combined.
Coat the fish, chicken or shrimp in the batter and deep fry in heated canola oil over medium high heat until golden brown.
