Extra Crispy Spicy Fried Chicken
3 Harvest Haven eggs
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup hot red pepper sauce
4 cups flour
2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups buttermilk
Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder (to taste)
4 Harvest Haven drumsticks
Coconut Oil, for frying
Place drumsticks in a large bowl, and cover with buttermilk. Cover and chill for two hours, or overnight. This is an optional (but recommended) step.
In a large bowl, add eggs, water, and red pepper sauce. Whisk until combined.
In a large gallon freezer bag, mix flour, pepper, paprika, and cayenne.
Remove chicken from buttermilk (if marinated) and sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Place all drumsticks in freezer bag with flour mixture. Shake until all pieces are evenly coated.
Remove drumsticks one at a time, shaking excess flour. Dip each piece in the egg mixture, and return to bag of flour. After all pieces of been dipped in the egg mixture and put back in the bag, give it a second shake to coat chicken pieces again.
Heat oil in deep fryer or deep pan to 350 degrees. Drop each drumstick into the hot oil. Fry for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown, turning occasionally if oil does not completely cover chicken.
