For dipping mixture:

in a medium-sized bowl, beat the eggs with the water.

Add hot sauce and whisk together well.

Pour this mixture into a large plastic zip-top bag and add seasoned chicken and squish around to coat thoroughly and refrigerator over night.

After 24 hour let chicken drip on a rack.

Heat cooking oil in a large deep pot to 350°F making sure the chicken is cover with oil.( the secret  of deep fried chicken don't turn it over).

One piece at a time, roll chicken in flour mixture and drop into hot oil.

Don't crowd chicken pieces

Fry chicken until brown and crisp.

Drain on paper toweling.

Dark meat will take about 14 minutes, white meat about 10 minutes.

Remember smaller pieces cook faster than the larger ones.

You can check if it done by piercing to the bone in the thickest part with a fork.

If the juices run clear, it is done.
