In a large bowl add the eggs, hot sauce, the garlic salt and black and Cayenne pepper and evaporated milk and mix together well. Add the cut up chicken and get it all wet, cover it well and let it marinate overnight in the fridge.  

Heat oil to 350 degrees in a large cast iron dutch oven or skillet.  In a large Ziploc bag, combine the flour, Creole seasoning. Then take one piece of chicken at a time and dredge in the dry ingredients in the Ziploc bag, shake it up and coat them each well and get them right into the oil stat!

Fry chicken, turning all around until brown on all sides. Cook until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees. Crunchy, not too spicy - AMAZINGLY GOOD FRIED CHICKEN!
