    A Copy Cat Recipe

    List of Ingredients

    Vegetable oil -- for fryer
    1 egg
    1 cup water
    2/3 cup all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup tempura mix
    = (or 1/3 cup flour for a total of 1 cup
    if tempura mix is unavailable)
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon Accent®
    1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    4 chicken breast filets
    4 sesame seed hamburger buns
    1 cup chopped iceberg lettuce
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    1/8 teaspoon onion powder


    McChicken Sauce: Stir ingredients together well, refrigerate until

    Preparing your McChicken Sandwich: Beat the egg and then combine it with
    1 cup water in a small, shallow bowl. Stir.

    Combine the flour, salt, pepper, Accent, onion powder and garlic powder in
    a one gallon size zip lock bag.

    Pound each of the breast filets with a mallet until about 1/4-inch thick.
    Trim each breast filet until it is round. Coat each filet with the flour
    mixture by shaking in the zip lock bag. Remove and dredge each filet in
    the egg mixture, coating well.

    Return each filet to the flour/seasoning mixture. Shake to coat. Put
    filets, bag and all, in the freezer for at least an hour. Cover and
    refrigerate remaining egg mixture. After freezing, repeat the "coating"

    Deep fry the chicken filets at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until
    light brown and crispy. As the chicken is frying, toast the buns.

    On the crown side of the bun, apply 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise mixture,
    followed by 1/4 cup chopped iceberg lettuce. Then top with the cooked
    chicken patty, and the heel of the bun. Wrap tightly in a 12- by 16-inch
    piece of waxed paper, and let stand 6 to 8 minutes.

    Microwave on high, individually, for 15 seconds and serve.

    This recipe yields 4 sandwiches.
