Nothing beats Mom's Fried Chicken and you'll know why after just one bite. With the perfect amount of crunch and juiciness, don't be surprised when your gang argues over who gets the last piece!
Chilling Time: 1 hr
Cooking Time: 35 min
What You'll Need:
1 (3-1/2-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon salt
Vegetable oil for frying
1 cup self-rising flour
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
What To Do:
1. In a large bowl, toss chicken with buttermilk and salt. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
2. In a large deep skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 inch oil until a deep-fry thermometer registers 360 degrees F.
3. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, mix flour, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Remove dark meat from buttermilk, shake off excess, and roll in flour mixture. Shake off excess flour, place in hot oil, and fry about 15 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through, turning occasionally. (Adjust heat, as needed.) Drain on a paper towel-lined platter.
4. Reheat oil to 360 degrees F. Repeat with chicken breasts and wings, frying about 15 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through, turning occasionally. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Serve hot or at room temperature.
