Laura's Spicy Fried Chicken

Dish: Hot & Spicy
Dish Type: Poultry
Cooking Method: Fried
Difficulty: 2 / 10
Servings: 4-5
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 20 min

  • 1 lbs. - chicken breast tenderloins
  • 8 - 10 oz. - Tabasco Sauce
  • 1/3 cup - water
  • 4 lrg. - eggs (whisked)
  • 3/4 cup - Self Rising Flour
  • - Vegetable Oil (for frying)
  • 2 Tablespoons - Black Pepper

Okay, it’s ultra easy and ultra fast. Here goes:

Get a deep 10″ frying pan (or for you lucky people: a Deep Fri-er) and pour in tons of vegetable oil. I get the big 48 oz bottles and use half of it, so about 28 fluid oz. And crank your stove top on HIGH! Give the oil a few minutes to get HOT HOT HOT! LOL!

In a bowl or Pyrex baking dish, pour in the water, the eggs and the lovely, yummy, delicious Tabasco sauce. Mmmmm… Mix them all up till the batter dip is nice and BRIGHT ORANGE. Set aside.

In another long deep dish, pour in your self rising flour and your Black pepper and MIX IT. Set aside.

Get you chicken: Properly clean your chicken breast in cold water. Rub it GOOD! And paper towel blot them so they are semi-dry. Now, plop those babies in the Spicy Concoction that is Tabasco! Poke them with a fork while your at it! Take out the day’s frustration on the poor little chicken! Take that! *clearing throat* okay…

Let them soak for a few minutes. You can check the temp on the oil. I just grab some extra self rising flour and toss it in. When it sizzles, it’s ready!

Now: Grab the chicken & flour them suckers! Coat it real nice like. That’s right, just like that! Let’s get to frying! Toss no more then 5 pieces in to the oil at a time or your oil will cool off due to the cold chicken. I let my chicken fry for about 10 minutes. 5 minutes for each side. Grab a plate with paper towels so the chicken strips can drain their oil. Then serve!

This is great with Home-made Mashed Potatoes and Corn. Yum!
