Mix flour and seasoning mix in shallow dish. Mix buttermilk and sauce in separate shallow dish.
Dip chicken in buttermilk mixture, then in flour mixture, turning to evenly coat each chicken piece.

Serve with hot baked beans and a steamed green vegetable.
For more tender chicken, refrigerate chicken in buttermilk mixture 2 hours to marinate. Remove from buttermilk mixture; discard buttermilk mixture. Coat with crumb mixture; continue as directed.
If using bone-in chicken breasts, cut in half crosswise, using kitchen shears, for more consistent cooking time with other pieces.
