Add hot sauce and whisk together well.

Pour this mixture into a large plastic zip-top bag.

Seasoning

Combine teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, paprika and the garlic powder in a bowl.

Sprinkle all chicken well with seasoning.

In batches, add chicken to ziploc bag and mix to coat.

One at a time roll chicken into flour and then drop into hot oil, cooking only 2-3 pieces at a time so you do not crowd them.
