Crispy, crunchy, incredible...those are just a few of the words that come to mind after just one bite. Maybe we should make a double batch 'cause it gets snatched up so quickly!
What You'll Need
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 (3 to 3-1/2 pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 cups vegetable oil
What to Do
- In a large bowl, combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper; mix well. Dip chicken pieces in buttermilk then in flour mixture, coating completely.
- In a large deep skillet, heat oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Fry coated chicken in batches 8 to 10 minutes per side, until golden and no pink remains. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Serve immediately.
- If your skillet isn't large enough to fry all the chicken at once, make sure to fry some of the dark meat and white meat at the same time to get the best flavor.
- Make sure to complete the meal with a side of our Southern Slaw!
