This was great!!! The chicken came out so tender and juicy . I used 2 chicken thighs, which I skinned. The crust fell off of the chicken when I took it out of the skillet. I think that's because of skinning it. It's not the recipes "fault" I think next time I make this, which I will make again. I won't skin it and see if it happens again. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Fall '08.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The night before, place chicken pieces in a large non-metal container or bowl, that has a sealable lid.
  2. Pour the quart of buttermilk over the chicken. Place lid on container/bowl & refrigerate overnight, until ready to cook.
  3. The next day, drain chicken in a large colander, but do NOT rinse.
  4. Dredge chicken in seasoned flour; set aside.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  6. Heat corn oil in a large skillet. I use an electric skillet, set at 350-375°F.
  7. Brown chicken, on both sides, in batches, but do NOT crowd. Using tongs, turn only once. About 10-15 minutes, each side, until golden brown.
  8. Place browned chicken in a roasting pan; cover.
  9. Bake for 1 hour.
  10. ENJOY!
