How to Make Spicy, Buffalo or Nashville Hot Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Presoak the chicken in buttermilk (or two cups whole milk + 2 tablespoons white vinegar or pickle juice)& cayenne based seasoning for 24 hrs.
  2. In a deep, heavy cast iron skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat, heat 10 ounces of lard to 375 degrees. Check temperature of oil throughout the cooking process using a candy thermometer, adjusting heat as needed to keep oil as close to 375 as possible.
  3. Remove chicken from buttermilk, and dredge in flour.
    *If you want an extra crunchy variety dredge in the following order
    1.Seasoned Flour
    2.Egg Wash
    3.Seasoned Flour
  4. Add chicken to hot grease, and cook, turning every 3-4 minutes, until chicken is golden brown and a meat thermometer registers 165 degrees, about 20-25 minutes if bone-in and less time of boneless.

    Drain chicken on paper towels.
  5. If you want "SPICY" chicken..stop here
    If you want "BUFFALO" chicken, toss in Franks Red Hot
    If you want "Nashville Hot" chicken continue to next step
  6. PASTE:
    Melt lard and seasonings in microwave 2 min.
  7. Slather bottom side of chicken piece
    Place slathered side down onto white bread
    Slather top with paste
    using a toothpick spear 3 pickle slices into the top of the chicken and serve..maybe with some Ranch Dressing if you like.
