  5. Remove the chicken and let the buttermilk drains a little bit, dredge chicken in the flour or better still, pour the flour in a plastic bag like a ziplock and add the chickens. Coat each chicken and place on a rack (over a baking sheet). Don't forget to shake off the excess. Repeat until you coat all the chicken.

Recipe Notes


You can also fry all the way through until the chickens are fully cooked and if you want to bake you as well do that just bake and skip the frying part.
