Paula Deen's Fried Chicken
My kids have requested fried chicken for tonight's dinner. According to Paula Deen's recipe, I need a bottle of hot red pepper sauce. I'm thinking any type of hot sauce, including Tabasco. Does that sound right??? Does her chicken require that much heat??
She recommends Texas Pete, which is about as hot as Frank's or Crystal, and quite a bit milder than Tabasco, Sriracha, and Cholula. Depending on your kids' tolerance for spicy food, you may want to use a milder sauce or less of it.
The question is not whether HER fried chicken requires that much heat, the question is whether YOUR fried chicken requires that much heat.
If you've used Tabasco before with good results then use it in this recipe.
I'm sure the Paula Deen Fried Chicken police will give you a pass on this one.
