Yield

Feeds 4
  • 1 Chicken ( fryer chicken, either purchased cut up (recommended) or purchased whole and broken down into pieces)
  • 3 cups Buttermilk
  • .25 cup Tabasco
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 3 tsp Salt ( divided)
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • .5 tsp Onion Powder
  • .25 tsp Pepper
  • Vegetable Oil ( or peanut oil for deep frying)

  • 2

    Combine the flour, remaining 2 teaspoons salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper in a shallow dish.

  • 3

    Remove the chicken pieces from the plastic bag and allow excess buttermilk to drip off. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour and seasoning mixture to make sure they are fully covered with flour and let chicken sit for 10 minutes.

  • 4

    Add about 1-inch of oil to a large, deep skillet. Using medium high heat, bring the oil to 350°F.

  • 5

    Fry chicken in batches of four, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a wire rack set on a baking sheet and put in an oven heated to 350°F and bake for 10 minutes. This will cook the chicken through without scorching the outside.

    Remove from oven, let rest 5 minutes and enjoy!
