Now all you need to do is:

Step 1: Prepare the chicken

Grab a zip-top bag and add two teaspoons of salt, alongside the buttermilk, Sriracha, and chicken. Give it a shake and ensure that the chicken is coated well. Place in the refrigerator and leave for around two hours.

Step 2: Bread the chicken

Grab a bowl (try to use a shallow bowl if possible) and add the pepper, one teaspoon of salt, and the flour. Stir well. In another bowl, add the eggs (ensure they’re beaten first). And in the last bowl, add your breadcrumbs. Place them in a line so it’s easy to work with each bowl. First, place your chicken in the flour, and shake. Then place into the egg (ensure it’s completely covered) and then place into the breadcrumbs. The entire chicken breast should be coated. Repeat until all the chicken is breaded.

Step 3: Fry the chicken

Using a deep pot or fryer, heat your oil until it reaches around 350F. Place each chicken breast into the fryer and fry for around 5-6 minutes. Ensure the juices run clear from the chicken and the outside has a golden brown color.

Step 4: Make the seasoning

Using all of the seasoning ingredients, add to a bowl and mix well.

Step 5: Serve

Place each piece of fried chicken into the bowl of seasoning and your fried chicken is now ready to serve! You can serve your chicken with a dip of your choice.

2) Barberton Chicken Hot Sauce Recipe

Now all you need to do is:

Step 1: Prepare the veg

Peel your onion and dice until you have fine pieces. Wash your celery and remove the strings before cutting. Once the strings are removed, dice until you have fine pieces.

Step 2: Cook the veg

Melt the shortening into a pan (a saute pan would be best). Once melted, add the onions and cook until soft (you do not want them to brown, they should be translucent). This should take a few minutes. Now add the celery and saute for a further few minutes. Now add your can of tomatoes. You can add some water at this point if you’d like. Stir well.

Step 3: Simmer

Next add the salt, pepper, and sugar, alongside the red pepper flakes. Mix well and then put your pan onto the lowest setting and leaving to simmer for around ten minutes, covered.

Step 4: Cook the rice

Rinse your rice and then add to your pan. Mix well and recover, leaving a small gap for the steam to rise. Leave for around 15 minutes and the rice should be cooked and there shouldn’t be much liquid left. Season again if needed, and add more tomato juice if needed.

Step 5: Serve

Mix well and your sauce is now ready to serve!
