Heh, math is not my strong suit. Fifteen tbsp is almost *two cups.* Adjust accordingly.

Hehheh. Glad I’m not the only one who’s math challenged. I use a calculator every time I bake bread! Even for the easy arithmetic! And I weigh in grams, not ounces, just because it’s easier!

Nobody challenged your one cup theory, so we're all together in math challenged company it seems. MsM said the recipe was for two cups of flour? That can't be right either.
How about a link to that recipe Joel?

I think you were right the first time, GG! The math challenged me just looked up a conversion and 16 TBLSP equals one cup.

That would make more sense with 2 cups of flour, but it would still be pretty darn spicy. Would like to see the full recipe too, Joel, out of curiosity!

Thanks, Cheryl! I feel so much better

Ask, and he shall receive

It’s more of an article than a recipe...

I had two Dolly breasts, skin on, bone in. I used about, a half cup of flour and just eyeballed the spices, 1/2 teaspoon to a teaspoon, with a bit more salt and garlic powder. No garlic salt, of course.

Problems with heating the oil to temp aside, it came out very well! The coating really did resemble KFC’s Original recipe!

I’ll do this again, but I’ve really gotta find some chicken breasts from an actual chicken instead of from Godzilla!

4 Tbsp. = 1/4 cup. Burn that into your brain, as it's one of the more useful conversions for the home cook.

The recipe for the peanut marinade calls for 4 Tbsp. soy sauce, 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar, and 6 Tbsp. peanut butter. So pull out the measuring cup, add 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/8 cup vinegar (now a total of 3/8 cup), and then add enough peanut butter to bring the liquid level up another 6 Tbsp. (3/8 cup), now for a total of 3/4 cup. Have you ever tried measuring 6 Tbsp. of peanut butter using measuring spoons?
