3 teaspoons red pepper sauce
1-3/4 pounds chicken, cut into 8 pieces, rinsed and patted dry
2-1/2 cups All Purpose Flour

In a shallow baking dish, whisk together flour, oregano, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. Toss the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour, a few at a time, until well coated. Dip chicken in buttermilk, then coat again in flour mixture.


In a large heavy skillet, pour oil to a depth of 1 inch. Heat the oil to 350ºF. (Use a deep fryer thermometer to measure the temperature.)


Add chicken pieces in a single layer, skin side down. Fry about 4 minutes. Turn over and fry the other side for about 4 minutes. Turn again, frying a total of about 15 minutes or until chicken is evenly golden brown and crisp. Remove cooked chicken from pan. Place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.
