Ingredients

3
eggs
1/3 c
water
1 c
texas pete's hot red pepper sauce
4 c
flour
2 tsp
pepper
2 tsp
paprika
3 tsp
cayenne pepper
1 qt
buttermilk
salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
1
chicken cut into pieces
peanut oil or frying

Step-By-Step

1Place cut-up chicken in a large bowl, and cover with buttermilk.
2Cover and chill for 2 hours or overnight.
3In a large bowl, add eggs, water, and red pepper sauce. Whisk until combined.
4In a large gallon freezer bag, mix flour, pepper, paprika and cayenne.
5Remove chicken from buttermilk and sprinkle lightly with salt, papper and garlic powder.
6Place all chicken pieces in freezer bag with flour mixture. Shake until all pieces are evenly coated.
7Remove chicken pieces one at a time, shaking excess flour. Dip each piece in the egg mixture and return to bag of flour. After all pieces have been dipped in the egg mixture and put back in the bag, give it a second shake to coat chicken pieces again.
8Heat oil in deep fryer or deep pan to 350 degrees. Working in batches, drop each piece of chicken into the hot oil. Fry for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally if oil does not completely cover chicken. Keep in mind that dark meat takes longer to cook than white meat. Watch your wing segments as well; these will finish cooking first.
