Start cooking the buttermilk soaked chicken by frying it in in oil, then finish it in the oven.
a tablespoon or so of Tabasco sauce
3eggs, beaten slightly.
Mix the buttermilk and hot sauce together, then soak the chicken pieces in it for a few hours, refrigerated.
In a deep dish frying pan, pour in enough oil to get to about 1 and 1/2 inches deep. To test the heat, add a pinch of flour to the oil and see if it sizzles.
Dip each piece of chicken into the bread crumbs and roll around, then into the egg, then back into the bread crumbs. Fry the chicken a few minutes until browned and partially done. Pick up the chicken pieces with some tongs and let as much oil as possible drain back into the pan, then put the chicken pieces into a baking dish.
Bake at 375 for 25 to 30 minutes, until done. (Cut into a dark meat piece like a thigh to make sure it's cooked through.)
