This recipe came from Paula Deen who has a cooking show on the Food Network. This chicken is so good. The house seasoning is made in bulk. You can store this for several months.

  1. Mix seasoning together and store in airtight container for up to 6 months.
  2. In medium bowl, beat eggs with water. Add enough hot sauce so mixture is bright orange.
  3. In another bowl, combine flour and pepper. Season chicken with house seasoning. You can let the chicken sit in hot sauce for up to 1 hour. It will not make the chicken spicy.
  4. Dip Chicken in egg and coat well with flour mix.
  5. Heat oil to 300 degrees in deep pot. Don't fill pot more than half full of oil.

  7. Preparation depends on how long you let the chicken soak in hot sauce.
