      Excellent spicy chicken! I cooked it in a deep fryer, which only took a few minutes per piece.

      I made this on 10/6/11 as part of mine and my SO's dinner.Instead of using the frying chickens, boneless skinless chicken breast were used. Another change that was made to the recipe was to the Cajun seasoning, I used Cajun Seasoning.Other than those two changes the recipe was made as it was written, even right down to using a cast iron skillet. :) I don't know if it was using the home-made Cajun Seasoning or what,but it wasn't nearly as spicy as I was expecting it to be.But, on the plus side, the chicken was very moist and flavorful just not spicy. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
