my own recipe for Spicy Oven Fried Chicken. It worked just fine.
Notes: As written, the recipe is about a 6/10 hot. I did increase the cayenne by a 1/4 tsp. and it was a strong 8/10. If your cooking for kiddies or the heat adverse, eliminate the cayenne. To keep the fat down, I used two egg whites but you could use one egg with the yoke. Finally ,in the original recipe the coating can be a little dry. I gave them a light spray with PAM... problem solved.
