Cut a 3# fryer into 9 pieces and discard the back portion. Make smooth
paste of the following ingredients to use as a marinade:
2 packages (0.6 oz each) Italian Salad Dressing Mix powder
3 T. flour
2 t. salt
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 T. oil

Spred mixture evenly over each piece of the cut-up fryer and stack pieces
in a bowl. Cover it and keep refrigerated about an hour (longer or
overnight for a strong flavor). Heat 1 1/2 pints oil in heavy 3 quart
saucepan or use automatic deep fryer--either method, kep the temperature
of the oil at 400!-425! because the chicken will be greasy if the oil is
not hot enough.

Dip each piece of the chicken into a bowl containing about 2 cups of Club
Soda (or beer) and then lightly dust in boxed pancake flour or
self-rising flour. Shake off the excess. Don't overcoat or coating may
break off while frying. Also keep oil temperature in check.

Fry a few pieces at a time for 4-6 minutes or until coating is golden
brown. Put enough water in a shallow open pan to fill it 1/4" to 1/2"
deep and place browned chicken, skin-side-up, breast pieces in first as
the bone structure will lift the chicken pieces up out of the liquid and
bake at 350! for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is tender. While chicken
is baking, sprinkle each piece with a little of the pancake flour and a
few drops of water and a spoonful of drippings drizzle over that, for a
crispier coating. For a more moist, cover pan with ktichen foil during
last 10 minutes of baking time.

Serves six.

If you don't like this recipe, she also has the Extra Crispy recipe which
uses lots of spices.

Good Luck.
