Method of Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Preheat frying oil to 365°F. 
  2. Combine buttermilk mixture ingredients in a bowl. 
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour mixture ingredients. 
  4. Completely coat the pieces of chicken in the flour mixture, then dip into the buttermilk mixture. Coat again with the flour mixture, pressing it into the chicken to make sure the chicken is completely covered.  
  5. Fry in batches for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown, flipping half-way. After frying, place on a sheet tray lined with a wire rack and put in the oven for 5-10 minutes. This will help to finish the cooking, and allow excess oil to drip off of the chicken.
