Spicy Cayenne Chicken

vegetable oil for frying
1/3 cup hot pepper sauce
2/3 cup water
1 cup flour
2 1/2 tsp. salt
4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
boneless chicken breast, cut into strips.

Preheat oil to 350 degrees.
Combine pepper sauce and water. Combine flour, salt, cayenne pepper, pepper, onion powder, paprika and garlic powder in another bowl.
Coat each piece of chicken with flour, then dredge it in the pepper sauce, then coat with flour mix again. Fry 8-12 minutes or til juices run clear and chicken is done. Remove to paper towels to drain.

I got this recipe from a copycat site a few years ago. I think I was looking for KFC chicken at the time. It was for the sandwiches, but I use it for chicken strips instead. This is very spicy, but good!

note: for those households with children, try just 2 tsp. cayenne pepper for this recipe, then if its too tame you can add more next time.
