    Can you put too much spices? 1 TSP of one spice per lb? Of course you spice before flouring and put spice in the flour.

    I don't know if there is a ratio. That would depend on what spices you were using. You don't want to use so many spices that you can't taste the chicken.

    It would more be the ratio to your breading. That's where the spice would be applied to the chicken mostly. the chicken will pick up the flavor by surface area that's breaded. I've also seen garlic and hot sauce added to the buttermilk soak.
