|\N \N||Liquid hot-pepper sauce|
Beat eggs or egg yolks in a large, shallow bowl. Gradually stir in vodka.
Stir in 10 dashes liquid hot-pepper sauce, 1-½ tsp white pepper and mustard. Then add chicken thighs, rolling each several times to coat evenly. Let stand at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours at room temperature, frequently spooning marinade over each thigh. In a deepfat fryer, heat oil to 350. Meanwhile, mix flour, ¼ tsp white pepper and salt. To fry, coat each thigh in flour mixture, then dip back in marinade, then coat in crumbs. Add thighs to hot oil, 2-4 at a time. Be careful not to add so many that the oil temperature drops. Cook 10-12 minutes or until meat near bone is no longer pink. Drain on paper towels. Serve with liquid hot-pepper sauce, sherry pepper sauce or other hot sauce of your choice. Makes 6 servings.
