DIRECTIONS

  • Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl; pour the buttermilk over and toss with hands to coat.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour with kosher salt and black pepper.
  • Remove the chicken out of the buttermilk and coat each piece thoroughly with the flour mixture.
  • Place the coated chicken on a large platter (make certain to have all of your chicken coated before frying).
  • Pour the oil into a large heavy-bottomed stockpot to a depth of 1-inch and heat to 360 degrees F.
  • Working in batches carefully place several pieces of chicken into the oil and fry about 3 minutes on each side until the coating is a light golden brown (it will continue to brown in the oven) do not crowd the pieces while frying.
  • Remove the chicken from the oil and place each piece on a metal baking rack on a sheet pan.
  • Allow the oil to return to 360 degrees F before frying the next batch.
  • When all the chicken is fried bake at 350 degrees F (set oven rack to lowest position) for about 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink.
