DIRECTIONS

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper and place in a casserole dish.
  • In a nonreactive bowl, mix buttermilk, hot sauce and cayenne.
  • Pour the buttermilk mixture over the chicken, cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.
  • Into a large paper bag, measure the flour, cayenne, garlic powder, paprika, and salt and pepper.
  • Shake off excess buttermilk mixture and place the chicken, a few pieces at a time, into the bake and shake to dredge.
  • Place the chicken into the hot oil and fry until golden and crisp, about 8 to 10 minutes for white meat and 13 to 15 for dark meat.
  • Remove from the fryer onto a paper towel lined sheet tray and season with salt and pepper.
