This receipe is one of my family's favorite. I'll post the picture the next time I make it, but it's worth sharing without a picture. p.s. I'm not from the South, but as Paula Dean would say "Put a little South in Your Mouth"

How to Make Buttermilk Fried Chicken


  • 1The night before you'd like to make this, pound thin the thawed boneless skinless chicken breast to about 1/4 Inch and place in the Buttermilk in the fridge. I use a ziploc bag for ease, but you could also place in a container and seal it with a lid or plastic wrap.
  • 2Prepare the seasoned bread crumbs by adding the Arnies special seasoning, salt and pepper. If you prefer, a little flour also ads to it. Mix and place on a plate.
  • 3Heat the oil in a pan on high and reduce to medium low heat just before adding the chicken.
  • 4Remove the chicken from the Buttermilk and dredge through the Seasoned Bread Crumbs and place in the pan.
  • 5Cook on Medium Low heat for about 15 - 20 Minutes depending on how brown you like th coating. I cover the pan to avoid splatter.
  • 6Serve with your favorite sides. My boys like mashed potatoes and a fresh veg. Enjoy.
