2 cups flour 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp thyme 1/2 tsp basil 1/2 tsp oregano 1 tbsp celery salt 1 tbsp black pepper 1 tbsp dry mustard 4 tbsp paprika 2 tsp garlic salt 1 tsp ground ginger 3 tbsp MSG (called Accent or Zeal in supermarkets, an important ingredient) Mix all ingredients well in a large bowl.
Although the ingredients and proportions used above are correct (use finely ground ingredients only, or grind them yourself), the cooking process is difficult to match as not many people have an oil pressure cooker handy, the following method approximates the outcome fairly well for home use.
Dip chicken pieces in beaten eggs Then turn them over in regular bread crumbs (commercial) Finally plunge them in the flour-spices mixture (above) Heat oven to 350 degrees Place chicken in a tray and cover with foil (shiny side out) Cook 40 minutes. Remove the foil then cook for another 40 minutes Baste lightly with oil 5 minutes before the end Let stand 5 minutes and serve.
