I've got the secret recipe and I am sharing it here with you, my special readers.   


2 pkg Good Seasons Italian Salad dressing
¼ C lemon juice or vinegar
2 T oil or butter

2 C milk or club soda or beer
3 lbs chicken pieces 
- small pieces fry quicker/
- so does white meat

Aunt Jemima Pancake Flour (or other good brand)

Deep fryer with oil


Make paste of:
Salad dressing, lemon juice, and oil or butter

Spread paste evenly over chicken pieces
Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 2 hours

One hour before serving:
Heat deep fryer to 40 degrees

Put milk in deep bowl and dip chicken, letting excess drip off

Dust lightly but evenly with flour.  Do not over coat.  Without letting pieces touch, lay each piece on a paper towel to dry for a few minutes

Fry a few pieces at a time in the deep fryer

Place fried chicken on a cookie sheet without letting them touch each other and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes
