It was a hit with the WHOLE family!! I used skinless breasts and buttermilk in the gravy recipe where it calls for milk.

DELICIOUS!!! Simple and moist. This fried chicken came together so easy "and who doesn't love easy?" I didn't make the gravy because I served this with Potato Salad. This will defiantly be made again. Thank you for posting :)
