I wanted to do something different with Fried Chicken, so I used Old Bay as my seasoning and it seemed to work out just fine. The time it takes for this to soak is not included in the prep time, so please plan ahead if you are making this recipe.If desired when frying chicken, sprinkle with extra Old Bay Seasoning. As with my recipes, adjust to your own tastes. :)
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon hot sauce (I used 3 to 4 drops )
- 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin for even cooking
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1⁄3 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
