6-8 thin-sliced chicken breasts
2 c flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 c buttermilk
1 tablespoon hot sauce
Oil for frying

Step 1: Place a large pan or a deep dryer on the stove and turn the heat to 325 degrees F.
Step 2: Add in oil and allow it to become hot.
Step 3: In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Whisk until well combined.
Step 4: In a separate bowl, add the egg, hot sauce, and buttermilk. Whisk until well mixed.
Step 5: Dredge each chicken into the flour mixture, then into the egg mixture, then back to the flour mixture. Press the chicken into the flour mixture to make sure they are well coated.
