“I've been looking for a good Chicken Fingers batter and found this on: Cook time is NOT passive so I didn't enter any specific time.”
1 lb meat/poultry/fish

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix eggs, salt, garlic, flour, cornstarch, and milk to make a smooth batter.
  2. Mix honey, lemon juice, sherry and ginger together and marinate shrimp (split in back), lobster (cut in cubes), chicken (cut in pieces 1" x 2"), or thin-sliced pork for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Fry dipped pieces in peanut oil until light brown.
  4. OPTION:
  5. Cool fried pieces after frying, then refrigerate, if desired, and later redip in batter, refry until golden brown. Even crunchier, and great as appetizers for a party that you can prepare ahead and still serve HOT at the last minute! It makes enough batter for 1 lb. of Shrimp, Lobster Meat, Chicken or Pork.
