    Place the chicken into the buttermilk and egg mixture and let marinate at least an hour. (you can also cover it and let it sit overnight in the fridge)

    Mix the 1TBL baking powder together with the seasoned flour. Roll the chicken pieces one at a time in the flour and place in the skillet or fryer. Put at many pieces in the skillet or fryer that will fit without crowding. Fry until golden brown.
