Secret Tempura Combo

Mr. Food

Serves: 6
Cooking Time: 20 min

What You'll Need:

  • 2 1/2 cups pancake and biscuit baking mix
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups club soda
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1/2 pound whole fresh mushrooms
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 3 cups vegetable oil for deep-frying

What To Do:

  1. In a large bowl, combine baking mix, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt. Add club soda; mix well. Add remaining ingredients except oil; stir to coat completely.  

  2. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, heat oil just until hot. Place coated chicken and vegetables in hot oil one piece at a time. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until coating is golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Continue until all are cooked, discarding any remaining batter.
     
  3. Serve immediately, or keep warm on a baking sheet in a low oven.  

Note: If the batter thickens, just add a little more club soda to get it to the proper consistency.
