Crispy Buttermilk Fried Chicken


2 pounds chicken
3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
1 cup buttermilk
Vegetable oil (enough to cover chicken), about 1 quart


Mix flour, salt, paprika and pepper. Dip chicken in buttermilk and then into flour mixture. Cook chicken in oil, starting on medium-high heat, then, when chicken is browned, reduce heat to medium and cook an additional 30 to 35 minutes until chicken is done (approx 150-155 degrees F internal), turning occasionally.

How much oil? What type of oil?

It depends on the size of your pot or fryer. You want enough oil (I use vegetable oil) to cover the chicken. A quart will work.


4-6 servings
