  1. Combine buttermilk, TABASCO(R) Sauce, and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a large bowl or large resealable plastic bag and mix well. Add the chicken and cover bowl or seal bag; refrigerate for 6 to 24 hours.
  2. Combine flour, remaining 2 teaspoons salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper in a shallow dish. Remove chicken pieces from marinade and allow excess buttermilk to drip off. Dredge chicken pieces in flour mixture and let chicken sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Add about 1-inch of oil to a large, deep skillet. Attach a deep-fry thermometer and, over medium-high heat, bring oil to 350 degrees F.
  4. Fry chicken in batches of four, turning occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a wire rack set on a baking sheet.

We LOVE this recipe; however, we also did not find it spicy at all the first time we made it. We upped the amount of tabasco sauce from 1/4 cup to 1 1/2 cups and also added more black pepper, ga...

Chicken was very moist. One of the best fried chicken recipes we've had. Would recommend marinating overnight, as I only marinated for 6 hours. Will make again.

I haven't tried it yet, but when I do I'm gonna add cayenne to the flour mixture.
