Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a strong zip lock bag, add the chicken and enough butter milk to cover. Add the paprika.
  2. Squeeze the air out of the bag before sealing. Once sealed mixed the chicken well so that the paprika and buttermilk mix together.
  3. Let marinade for a couple hours or overnight.
  4. In a bowl thoroughly combine the flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  5. Dredge the chicken in the flour, coating it real good to get a nice crust.
  6. Deep fry chicken in oil that has been heated to 350 degrees.
  7. Fry chicken for 10-15 minutes until the juices run clear.
  8. Drain on paper towels.
  9. I love this chicken with corn on the cob and sliced, fried potatoes.
