How to Make Momma's Southeren Fried Chicken
- wash and completly dry chicken. Place in a large bowl and cover with buttermilk, cover bowl and place into icebox to keep cool for at least 30 minutes
- combine flour and other spices together. You can add or remove any ingredients that you wish it is a matter of taste, My mother never measured so these are just guestimates.. She showed my sister and I how she did it .. so we dont really measure it out either.. it is just a dash and shake of everything.
- Remove chicken from buttermilk allowing excess milk to drip from chicken. Place chicken into flour mixture, coat compleatly. Make sure that the oil is hot enough to sizzel if a bit of flour is tossed in it. places pieces of chicken into pan, careful not ot overfill. Fry for about 10-15 minutes the chicken will release itself from the pan once it is ready to be turned. Fry another 10-15 minutes, be sure not to under cook and not to over cook. place on platter with papper towel to drain oil. reserve some of the oil and all the crispy pieces .. this can be used to make some amazing gravy!
