Ingredients:  
1 tablespoon Duck Commander Cajun Seasoning (mild or zesty)
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili pepper
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 chicken (3 1/2 to 4 1/2 pounds), cut up, or purchase just the parts your family eats
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
Cooking oil, for frying
2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions:
Directions:
In a large bowl, mix together the Cajun seasoning, pepper, salt, chili powder, and Old Bay. Roll the chicken pieces in the seasoning mixture. If you need more seasoning, mix more. In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Mix the buttermilk and Tabasco. Add the chicken pieces and make sure they are all coated. Fill the skillet about 1/2 full with oil. Turn on to medium-to-high heat. One at a time, take the chicken pieces out of the bowl and roll them in the flour. Set aside. When the oil is hot (350F), carefully add the chicken pieces. Brown them on all sides. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes more, turning as necessary, until cooked through. The chicken should turn a golden brown. Use a fork to test. (The juices should be clear.) Drain on paper towels and serve.
