In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Lightly dredge chicken in flour, shaking off any excess. Place chicken pieces on skewers. Place skewers on a plate or baking sheet and set aside.
In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium high heat. Add cider vinegar, Frank's, and Tabasco sauce, stirring until well combined. Take off heat and set aside.
Put oil in a large stock pot. Oil should come at least three inches up the side of the pot. Heat oil over high heat to 380°F.
Place three skewers into pot and fry until just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel lined baking sheet to get rid of any excess oil. Continue frying remaining skewers in batches.
Transfer skewers to a large bowl or casserole dish. Stir sauce until it's well combined then pour over skewers and rotate until well coated. Serve immediately.
