This fried chicken has a crispy outside and a tender inside. The breaded can be made as spicy as you want it to be. Its fall off the bone goodness. Try with ranch or honey bbq both are tasty as well.

How to Make Fried Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together spices, and pour half into a gallon size ziplock bag. Pat the chicken with the other half of the spice mix. Pierce with a fork all over.
  2. Pour buttermilk over chicken in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hrs.
  3. Pat the chicken dry, and place in the ziplock bag with the flour and the spices mixed together inside. In small batches shake the chicken until coated.
  4. Pour oil in fryer or dutch oven, and heat to 360F. Fill about 1/3 of the way with oil.
  5. Cook chicken in small batches, or the temp of the oil will drop which means a soggy crust…yuck!
  6. Cook for 12 – 15 min until golden brown, and the internal temp if 160F or higher. Drain on paper towels.
  7. If necessary you can bake in the oven if the chicken is not up to temp yet. Bake @ 325 until done. Enjoy!
