Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 1/2 c
- canola oil, for frying
- chicken, frying pieces (your favorite)
- 1 c
- martha whites self-rising buttermilk cornmeal mix
- 1/2 c
- 1 tsp
- garlic powder
1Heat canola oil to medium in a medium skillet. Wash and rinse chicken, then pat dry with paper towels. Salt & Pepper chicken and set aside.
2Place buttermilk in a dish and cornmeal mix in another dish. Dip both sides of chicken in buttermilk first and then dip both sides in cornmeal mix packed well. Let set on a plate while you finish coating the rest of the chicken.
3I fry 4 pieces at a time in a medium cast iron skillet to leave space in between. I fry 10-12 minutes on each side. Dark meat takes alittle longer to cook than breasts. Remove chicken and drain on paper towels. Enjoy this chicken.
