"This tasty fried chicken recipe is one I tried at work when one of my co-workers brought in some leftovers for her lunch. She shared a piece with me and I loved it, I had to have the recipe and she gladly shared it with me. I use my #recipe2067 but you can use your favourite ranch dressing mix."

I was really curious about making this with pancake mix. I'm so glad that I gave it a try. It's super simple and packed with flavor. The coating is really crispy and the inside is really moist which is just the way we love our chicken. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe, Bea. Made for Went to the Market tag.
