    03 Method
    • Step 1
      Heat the warming drawer or oven to 200 ºF.
    • Step 2
      Pat the chicken with paper towels to dry.
    • Step 3
      In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, Tabasco sauce, salt, and 1 tablespoon of black pepper. Add the chicken legs to the mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate with the marinade for at least 1 hour (or up to 24 hours).
    • Step 4
      Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and let any excess buttermilk drip off.
    • Step 5
      Combine the flour, additional 1 tablespoon black pepper, and the cayenne. Shake the chicken legs in the seasoned flour and place on a rack while waiting for the oil to heat.
    • Step 6
      In a large, heavy saucepan or deep skillet or sauté pan, heat at least 3 cups of oil to about 365 ºF. Fry the chicken legs in batches for about 10 minutes, turning once. To check for doneness, use an instant-read food thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the largest drumstick, not touching bone. The minimum safe temperature for poultry is 165 ºF.
    • Step 7
      Remove the chicken to paper towels to drain.
    • Step 8
      Place the drained chicken on a baking sheet, cover loosely with foil, and move to the warming drawer or oven to keep warm while frying subsequent batches.
