Fast Finger Lickin’ Fried Chicken

Fried ChickenSeriously, who doesn’t love fried chicken? Crispy, flavorful pieces of hot goodness — is there anything more satisfying than that? This particular recipe gives you just that and is ready in under 30 minutes! Even better, right? Treat yourself and your family, they will thank you.

Ingredients:

3 eggs

1/3 cup water

About 1 cup hot red pepper sauce (recommended: Texas Pete)

2 cups self-rising flour

1 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 (1 to 2 1/2-pound) chicken, cut into pieces

Oil, for frying, preferably peanut oil

Directions:

In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add enough hot sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange. In another bowl, combine the flour and pepper. Season the chicken with the house seasoning. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the flour mixture.

Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.

Fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp. Dark meat takes longer then white meat. It should take dark meat about 13 to 14 minutes, white meat around 8 to 10 minutes.
