Fried Chicken

Fried Chicken

Prep Time: 10 min
Inactive Prep Time: 24 Hours
Cook Time: 14 min
Level: Easy
Serves: 8 servings (16 pieces)


3 eggs
2/3 cup water
About 2 cups hot red pepper sauce
4 cups self-rising flour
2 teaspoon pepper
2 (2 to 3 1/2-pound) chickens, cut into pieces
Lard for frying

In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add the hot sauce and mix so the egg mixture is bright orange. Add chicken pieces to egg mixture, cover and refrigerate over night.

The next day in another bowl, combine the flour and pepper. Remove the chicken from the egg, and then coat well in the flour mixture.

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