We snagged this recipe from Paula Deen and tweaked it a bit to our own personal taste. This recipe is better than any fried chicken my mother or grandmother ever made or even KFC for that matter. I like to dip it in hot sauce such as Hooter's and the kids like to dip it in their favorite....plain ol' ketchup.
Combine eggs, hot sauce, and water. It will be bright orange in color. Dip the chicken in the hot sauce mixture then into the flour. Place into a preheated deep fryer ideal for cooking chicken.
This recipe will not make your chicken spicy but gives it an extra crispiness texture that's better than my mothers, my grandmothers, or KFC's any day.
For extra flavor or zing, you can allow the chicken to marinate overnight in the hot sauce mixture or coat with your own choice of favorite hot sauce or flavor after cooking. My kids love it just plain with a little salt and pepper. Enjoy!!
