  • Cut the chicken into strips and then put them in a bowl of water. Then on a plate or bowl, whichever, mix flour with salt (it will take a few tries to figure out how much salt is enough, or it will be bland). Take a piece of chicken and shake the water off a little, and then put it in the flour and coat it and then stick in a pan of hot crisco =] lol. Thats what my sister does and it always turns out SO GOOD! I can never make it taste like hers though :(

  • Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.
    In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs.
    Add enough hot sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange (about 1 cup).
    Season the chicken with the House Seasoning.
    Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the flour. Place the chicken in the preheated oil and fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp.
    Dark meat takes longer than white meat. Approximate cooking time is 13 to 14 minutes for dark meat and 8 to 10 minutes for white meat.

  • Same as what SandraB said, except instead of water I use a mixture of egg and buttermilk (milk and vinegar if I don't have buttermilk). I also put a little black pepper with the flour and salt and add more salt as soon as it comes out of the grease. If you use whole chicken as opposed to strips you need a pretty deep pan of grease or oil.
