Pound the chicken between two sheets of wax paper, large baggie or celophane. Sprinkle on the kosher salt, garlic powder and pepper on the chicken breast.
Place 2 cups of flour in a shallow bowl. I add more seasonings to the flour. Stir together the baking powder, pepper, garlic powder salt.
Place in another bowl the buttermilk and the egg. Add a dash of Tabasco sauce optional.
Than dredge each chicken piece into the flour. Do this 2 and it is called double dipping.
Heat the shortening to 325 degrees. Fry each chicken until golden brown 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place on a paper towel to drain.
Drain the fat from the skillet, reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid and solids for the gravy. Stir in milk and cream heat to medium, and bring the gravy to a simmer. Cook until thick. Season. Spoon gravy over chicken. Done!
