Buttermilk fried chicken is a delicious chicken to enjoy and this is a crowd-pleaser. Chicken is one of the most eaten protein at least in our house. This is very easy chicken to make but it takes steps to get it right.
This buttermilk fried chicken was marinated in buttermilk and seasoning overnight but you can marinate a minimum of one hour. Then was seasoned again then dredged in flour twice before frying.
When you want to fry make sure the oil is not too much between 320 and 325 degrees F also covering on and off work very well while frying. You can also use a fork to poke the chicken to see the juice runs clear or when the chicken reads 165 degrees F.
You might want to try;
- 8 Chicken drums(or any part of your choice)
- 2 Cups Buttermilk
- 1 Cup All-purpose flour
- 2 Tablespoons Garlic powder
- 1 Tablespoon Onion powder
- 1 Tablespoon Cayenne pepper
- 1 Tablespoon Poultry seasoning
- 2 Tablespoons Paprika (divided)
- 1 Tablespoon Adobo seasoning
- 1 Teaspoon Dried thyme
- Salt and pepper
- Enough oil for frying
Clean the chicken, add it to a bowl add 1 tablespoon paprika and cayenne, thyme, salt, pepper, and buttermilk. Leave overnight if you can do it overnight (in a refrigerator) or a minimum of one hour.
Bring it out and bring it to room temperature. Drain and set aside.
In another bowl combine all the remaining ingredients except the flour. Sprinkle half of the seasonings over the chicken, make sure you rub under the skin and outside.
Heat oil in a skillet or fryer to 320-325 degrees F.
Combine the flour with the rest of the seasonings, coat the chicken and set aside for 10-15 minutes then coat the chicken again.
Gently add the chicken to the hot oil make sure the oil is not hot than 325 degrees F if not the chicken will burn or the inside won't cook. After about 3-5 minutes flip the chicken then cover after a few minutes remove the cover and flip again. Flip as you fry and as many as possible. Cover off and on while you flip and fry until the chicken is golden brown. You can use a fork to poke the chicken to see the juice if it runs clear or uses a thermometer until it reads 165-degrees f.
Serve it with biscuits or whatever side you like.
