Rinse the chicken with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

In a small bowl, combine salt, black pepper, cumin, mustard and paprika. Rub the mixture onto the chicken. Place in a large baking dish, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight.

In a 6-quart deep sauté pan over medium-high heat, heat the oil to 375 F on a deep-frying thermometer. Preheat an oven to 200°F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels.

o make the batter: In a bowl, combine the flour, milk, salt, paprika, cumin, black pepper and eggs and mix well. Dip the chicken into the batter.
Place the bread crumbs on a plate. Dredge the chicken in the bread crumbs, shaking off the excess and set on a plate.
