This is a long-time standard in the southeast United States, but KFC brought this recipe to the attention of the Nation when they put it on their menu. Here is my recipe, plus links to three others.

If you don’t like it QUITE so hot, feel free to substitute Grandpa’s Thunder Powder instead of my Arghhh Powder.

2 chicken breasts and 2 thighs
