My husband picked out this recipe because he wanted something spicy. So I followed Jeffsmom's advice and added a little extra cayenne (1/2 tsp instead of 1/4). The chicken was delicious with just the right amount of heat. Every piece was eaten. Thanks for the recipe.

One of my favorite fried chicken recipes...saw Rachael Ray make it on her cooking show a while back and have been making it ever since. I always use only chicken tenderloins as I do not care for dark meat and they are yummy!

Next time, I would use a little more cayenne, and cook the pieces 10-12 minutes per side to cook thoroughly.
