    Hi, Zona! This is right up my ally. Mr. Wonderful would love it. However, Drakes Crispy Fry Mix? Haven’t seen that here in WI. What would you suggest as a replacement?

      Hi Judy. I’m not sure if any other product would have the same exact flavor so I recommend only using Drake’s. I have updated the post with links to the Drake’s Mix so you can see exactly what the box looks like. My local store carries it near the Shake N Bake chicken coating. I think Walmart stores carry it as well if you don’t see it in your grocery store. You can also try googling “Drake’s Crispy Fry Mix near me”. Good luck, I hope you find it because it totally makes this dish amazing along with the pine nuts 🙂
