Does anyone have a recipe for fried chicken?


Does anyone have a recipe for fried chicken?


In each of two 1-gallon resealable plastic bags, combine 1 cup buttermilk, 1/2 tablespoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne, and half the chicken pieces. Shake to coat; refrigerate up to 2 days. In a large, shallow bowl, whisk flour with 2 tablespoons salt and remaining 2 teaspoons cayenne. (This pungent spice is made from ground dried chiles. Used in small quantities, it adds heat to dishes without being overpowering.) Dredge chicken pieces, one at a time, in mixture, shaking off excess. In a 12-inch cast-iron skillet (or other heavy-bottom skillet), heat oil to 350 degrees F on a deep-fry thermometer (or until a pinch of flour sizzles when dropped in the oil). Carefully add 1/3 of the chicken. Cook 10 minutes; turn chicken with tongs. Cook until golden brown, juices run clear, and internal temperature is 165 degrees F, about 10 minutes more. Transfer to a rack to drain. Season with salt, if desired. Return oil temperature to 350 degrees F. Repeat with remaining chicken.


Dredge in flour, then egg, then panko with whatever seasonings you want. Fry until cooked through.


Steps 1 & 2 – Brine:

1 gal water to 1 cup salt – brine for 2 days

Then brine in buttermilk – 1 day

Step 3

Dip in lightly seasoned flour (you want a very light coating) 

Step 4

Cook country ham hocks in butter and lard – use that to fry the chicken on medium heat. Cook 10-12 min
