Long John Silvers Chicken Planks (with their honey mustard dipping sauce) are one of my most beloved, and equally guilty, fast food pleasures. I enjoy all of their deep-fried delights, but the planks are my favorite. Here is the secret recipe to their wonderful batter, which in my opinion is what makes their food so decadently delicious!
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 microwave)
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.
