Southern Fried Chicken

Southern Fried Chicken with Milk Gravy

6-8 pieces of chicken (see note below)
1-2 cups buttermilk
Salt & pepper
2 eggs
1/4 cup hot sauce
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional) Cover chicken in buttermilk and marinate for 4-6 hours (or overnight). Drain chicken then lightly season with salt and pepper; set aside. Whisk together eggs and hot sauce in a shallow bowl; set aside. Combine flour and remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Reserve 1/4 cup of mixture for gravy. Set aside. Heat 3-4 inches of oil or shortening in a large pan or skillet (I use my 12-inch Dutch oven) to 325 degrees if using bone-in pieces or 350 if using boneless (see note below). Dredge one piece of chicken in flour and shake off any excess. Dip chicken in egg wash and shake off any excess. Dredge chicken back in flour once more taking care to thoroughly…
