COOK TIME

This recipe for Secret Tempura Combo may just put your favorite Asian restaurant out of business! And we love it because it also works with almost any type of vegetable (although firm ones work best).

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.
     
Notes
  • If the batter thickens, just add a little more club soda to get it to the proper consistency.
     
  • We recommend you serve this with another favorite, our Asian Cabbage Salad!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

didn't really care for this because as simple as onion rings couldn't get batter to stick, used it thick and thin. Deep frying it came off. Can anyone help....Jean C

Make sure vegetables are dry and try coating in flour first then batter and fry.

We used to make a similar batter for dipping meat in for our fondue 40 years ago. Brings back fond memories.

I thought tempura batter was made with corn starch. Any comments?

Traditionally it is made with corn starch, however, ours is a shortcut version which is a little easier to work with. Enjoy!

It sounds really great. I'm definitely going to try it.

This recipe can also be used for shrimp tempura ,clean, devein,but leave on tail shell, slice down the back side of shrimp to hanging position, dip ,let drip excess of or swhake a little and drop in hot oil. Also use beef strips for dipping in home made milk gravy, yummmmmm

Kitchen Sink Pie

Our Kitchen Sink Pie was inspired by the famous "Kitchen Sink" ice cream dessert from Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor in Florida. Like the original, it's got everything but the kitchen sink, including an ice cream cone crust, piles of ice cream, and all sorts of sundae toppings!
