Clean and prep Chicken pieces. Season chicken with spice mix ( reserve some of spice mix for later).

3

Pour Jalapeño brine in with Chicken. Wearing gloves, mix spices into chicken until evenly coated. Place in refrigerator to Marinate for at least 4-6 hours. ( for skin on chicken pieces, I Marinate overnight.)

Once ready to fry, Remove from refrigerator and allow chicken to come up to room temperature.

Heat oil to 350 degrees.

Season flour with salt and dredge chicken in it. Shake off any excess.

Serve and eat while hot.
