Ingredients

lard to fill large cast iron pan
8
chicken pieces
1 pt
buttermilk
1 c
flour
1 c
stone ground corn meal
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brine the chicken in sweet tea for a day.
2
Mix salt, pepper, cornmeal, and flour in a shallow bowl. Drench the chicken in buttermilk before dredging it in the dry mixture.
3
Lard is the right temperature if the chicken only bubbles. After a few minutes turn the chicken, and then turn it again. When it's the color of straw put a lid on it, turn again after a few minutes, cover again, and turn again. Adjust the temperature as needed to keep the chicken at a bubble.

The chicken is done when it stops bubbling.

Serve with cream gravy, honey mustard, hot sauce and honey, or straight.
