Heat oil to 375 degrees.

In one Ziploc bag use 1 cup of flour and cayenne pepper; close bag and shake mix together well. This will be bag 1. In the other bag, use remaining flour, bread crumbs, chili powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. pepper, and garlic powder. Close bag and shake to mix all ingredients together. This will be bag 2.

In soup bowl, create egg wash with egg, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper, milk, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, and whisk ingredients together. Start with bag 1 and place about 8 pieces of chicken in bag 1. Seal and shake to coat the chicken; take the chicken out and place in bowl of egg wash stir to coat the chicken. Take the chicken from egg wash and place in bag 2, close bag and shake to coat chicken. Remove chicken from bag and place chicken carefully in fryer. Fry until done, which they should be nice and brown in about 6-10 minutes. Remove chicken from fryer and drain on plate with paper towels. Keep repeating process until all chicken is cooked.

Buffalo sauce

Melt 1/2 cup margarine, add 1/2 cup hot sauce blend together in large bowl. If you want it hotter use a little more hot sauce. Add cooked chicken pieces to sauce in large bowl. Mix, stir, shake, or toss to coat all chicken pieces. Place on plate. This should coat about 14 tenderloins. This sauce has excellent flavor with just a little bit of a bite.
