In a large bowl whisk together flour, cayenne, garlic powder, salt, pepper and beer. Mixture should be thick but pourable. Let mixture rest for 20 minutes.
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, 12 oz beer
If using whole chicken breasts, carefully slice each breast in half horizontally. If necessary, pound to an even thickness. The more uniform the chicken cutlets, the more evenly they will fry. The thinner the chicken cutlets, the quicker they will fry.
