Cut the chicken breast into fingers.
Put the yogurt in a deep bowl, and add the remaining ingredients for the batter. Mix well, and drop the pieces of chicken in, coating them well. Marinate in the refrigerator at least one hour, preferably over night.
Put the coating ingredients in a large bag and shake them about to combine them. Have ready a sheet pan with a baking rack to hold the chicken.
Remove the chicken from the marinade, and drop the pieces into the bag. Don''t crowd them too much. Shake the bag to coat the chicken, then remove the pieces and put them on the baking rack. When all the pieces have been coated, put the chicken in the refrigerator to settle for about 30 minutes. Throw out the coating and batter.
In a heavy skillet, put the bacon fat and oil. The oil should go about 1/3 up the side of the pan, if you need more, add more oil, Heat the oil until it reaches 325. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator, and have ready a second sheet pan with baking rack.
Place chicken skin side down into the pan. The oil should come half way up the pan. Cook chicken until golden brown on each side, approximately 10 to 12 minutes per side. More importantly, the internal temperature should be right around 180 degrees. (Be careful to monitor shortening temperature every few minutes.)
Drain chicken on a rack over a sheet pan. Don''t drain by setting chicken directly on paper towels or brown paper bags.
Despite the use of cayenne, this chicken is not spicy at all. Stay tuned for a recipe for Hot Wings using this same method that DO turn out spicy.
