DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the Red Stripe Beer (or your beer of choice) and cup buttermilk in a large glass bowl.
  • Add chicken to the bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  • Combine the flour, cornmeal, jerk seasoning, cornstarch, paprika, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix to combine.
  • Drain the chicken and discard the marinade.
  • Toss the chicken lightly one at a time to coat them. You can use a zip lock bag with the breading mixture to do this.
  • Place the breaded chicken on a large baking sheet lined with wax paper. Be sure they do not touch each other. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Pour oil in 2-3 inch deep skillet. Heat oil to approx 355°F (check with frying thermometer).
  • Add the chicken 2 at a time. Fry each for about 4 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown.
  • Remove each piece of chicken and place on paper towel to drain oil. Transfer to an oven safe platter once oil is drained.
  • Place in an oven set at 200°F to keep warm. Once all the chicken is cooked, it is best to serve immediately.
