Fried Chicken

Everyone likes fried chicken (unless you’re an asshole) but a lot of people don’t know how to make fried chicken. Here’s how to make it correctly and easily.

 

Time: 4 hours in fridge; 25 minutes cook time

Servings: 4 – 6

Ingredients

– Chicken with skin on (You can use whatever part(s) you want. I cut a 1.5 lb breast into large chunks for this recipe.)

– 1 Quart Buttermilk

– Salt (eyeball it, but no more than 1 tbsp.)

– Pepper (same as the salt)

– 2 – 3 cups flour (depending on if you double-dip; more on that later)

– 1 teaspoon paprika

– 1 tbsp. corn starch (optional, but recommended)

– 1 teaspoon baking powder (optional)

– Dash of Garlic Salt (optional)

– 1 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
