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.
  • If the batter thickens, just add a little more club soda to get it to the  proper consistency.
