These were pretty good but I added honey to the second batch and they had a much better flavor.
What a great recipe! I went on the advice of a few of the posters and marinated the chicken in hot sauce for about a half-hour. I didn't have cayenne pepper so I opted to used ground red pepper with the flour. Then I popped them in my deep fryer and they came out crispy on the outside, moist on the inside. Everyone loved them. I even made a buffalo chicken salad with them. Just some lettuce, shredded cheese, croutons and blue cheese dressing along with the chicken. Just like you'd get in a restaurant...for a fraction of the cost.
Loved this recipe. I used it as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. I marinated the chicken in hot sauce for 30-45 minutes and then coated with flour. I then deep fried the chicken until golden brown. After coating with sauce and serving them to husband, he agreed they were great. Would have liked a little more spice but he wolfed them down just the same. Going to keep this for future parties.
