DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and drain chicken.
  • Soak in buttermilk (enough to cover the pieces) for at least 30 minutes.
  • Heat shortening or oil to 375 degrees in an electric or cast iron skillet (should be enough hot oil to come half-way up the chicken when placed into the skillet). Place seasoned flour in a paper bag.
  • Shake off excess buttermilk from chicken and drop into bag of flour, two or three pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
  • (Option: For a thicker, crispier chicken, remove piecesfrom flour, dip in buttermilk a second time and shake them in flour mixture again.)
  • Place coated chicken pieces in hot oil and reduce the heat to 325 degrees.
  • Cook chicken for 10 minutes on one side, flip chicken over, and cook another 10 minutes on second side.
  • Drain cooked chicken on paper towels.
  • For the glaze, melt butter over low heat. Whisk in honey until blended.
  • Bring to a simmer and add pecans.
  • Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Ladle over hot fried chicken.
