Fried Chicken and Buffalo Chicken

Fried chicken is always mouth-watering and delicious, so here's how to make it.
You will need:
- 2 (2 to 3 pound) whole chickens, cut into pieces
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 5 tablespoons seasoned salt
- 3 tablespoons garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 quart vegetable oil for frying

In a shallow plate or bowl, mix the flour, seasoned salt, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Roll or shake the chicken pieces in the flour mixture and place on a platter. Then, dip each chicken piece in the egg mix and roll again in flour mixture. In a large skillet, heat oil for frying. Fry coated chicken pieces in the hot oil for about 5 minutes on each side. Cover skillet and cook on lower heat for about 10 minutes. Remove the cover, turn up heat and fry for 5 minutes on each side to make chicken crispy. Chicken is done when it is no longer pink inside and its juices run clear. Drain the fried chicken on paper towels and keep warm in oven until ready to serve.

To make buffalo chicken:
It's the same recipe to cook the chicken and all you do next is make the hot sauce. In a small pot, melt some butter and then add some hot sauce and mix. (Use as much as you like for both) Once it's heated then dip each chicken piece into the hot sauce and put on a platter and serve.
