Be prepared to eat the best fried chicken of your life. The chicken is bursting with Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce flavor, and the delicate, crisp crust has the wonderful flavor of ranch.
PLACE the chicken pieces in a zip-top bag. Add the milk and Frank's RedHot Sauce to the bag, seal it, and shake gently to coat the chicken pieces. Refrigerate overnight.
IN a medium bowl, whisk together the Ranch Dressing mix, flour, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
DRAIN the chicken in a colander. discard the marinade. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour mixture, coating the pieces on all sides, and arrange the coated pieces on a platter.
AFTER coating the chicken in the flour mixture, heat 1 inch oil in a 14-inch cast iron skillet to 350°F. Fry the chicken, in batches, until fully cooked and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Turn with tongs occasionally during cooking if the chicken pieces are not fully submerged in oil so that they brown on all sides Drain the chicken pieces on paper towel-lined plates or on a baking rack placed over a baking sheet to catch drips. Serve immediately.
