Copycat Long John Silver’s Chicken Recipe

I can’t remember the last time I visited a Long John Silvers! You won’t even know the difference between this batter recipe and the Long John Silvers chicken batter recipe! I’m sure this has to be healthier. In my head anyway! Either way, this copycat recipe hits the spot when I’m craving Long John Silvers chicken!

I worked at a shoe store during college. I often frequented the Long John Silver’s during lunch breaks. I would always get their chicken planks, hush puppies, fries and a large pink lemonade (check out these homemade lemonade recipes).

1 lb Chicken Tenderloins
3/4 cup, Flour
2 Tbsp, Cornstarch (or Arrowroot Powder as a Whole30 or Keto alternative)
1/4 tsp, Baking Soda
1/4 tsp, Baking Powder
1 tsp, Salt
1 tsp, Sugar
1/4 tsp, Onion Powder
1/4 tsp, Garlic Powder
3/4 cup, Water

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Add water and stir until well combined.
Heat oil to between 360 and 375.
Dip fish or chicken in batter to coat completely.
Deep fry for until golden brown (about 3 minutes per side).
