Fried Chicken

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • About 1 cup Deaf Man’s XXX BBQ Sauce
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • House seasoning, recipe follows
  • 1 (1 to 2 1/2-pound) chicken, cut into pieces
  • Oil, for frying, preferably peanut oil
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup black pepper
  • 1/4 cup garlic powder

Directions

  1. In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add enough BBQ sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange. In another bowl, combine the flour and pepper. Season the chicken with salt, black pepper & garlic powder. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the flour mixture.
  2. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.
  3. 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.
