This is a great version of traditional fried chicken recipes, but it’s a heck of a lot easier! You’ll still get that wonderful southern food flavor, however. You’ll love the spicy, crunchy coating on the exterior and the tender, juicy chicken flesh on the inside. To add some more heat to your oven fried chicken recipes, sprinkle on the hot sauce once the chicken is done!
