Kentucky Fried Rabbit (buttermilk marinated)

Melissa Turner


Had never had rabbit before, but after watching my cooking shows and seeing them use rabbit a lot I thought I would give it a try. Decided to fry it and wow was I missing out all these years. Simply delicious.

How to Make Kentucky Fried Rabbit (buttermilk marinated)


  • 1Place the rabbit in a zip-lock bag with the buttermilk, onion, garlic (minced), oregano, thyme, rosemary, paprika, and 1 tsp of cayenne. Marinate overnight in fridge.
  • 2In another zip-lock bag mix the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, 2 tsp cayenne pepper, and season well with salt and pepper. Heat 2-3 cups of oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • 3Drain the rabbit from the buttermilk. Toss pieces into the flour mixture and shake until well coated. Add the rabbit to the skillet and fry for 10 minutes until golden brown on each side. Be careful to keep the oil hot enough to fry the rabbit, but not so that it burns. When done place on wire rack to drain excess oil.
