Homemade Fried Chicken

I tried a combination of Popeye’s, KFC and southern fried chicken, which turned out, darned good. Due to popular demand I am uploading this recipe to my blog so that everyone who tasted this recipe can try it for themselves. I fried it and played around with the ingredients and this has been the best. Folks were queuing up behind me during frying.

 

Ingredients:

Chicken

Buttermilk

Salt

Black pepper

 

8 chicken breast cut into big but bite size pieces

Chicken thighs or drumsticks can also be used.

Marinade the chicken for one day in buttermilk mixture. You can skip this part if you have an awful craving for some good old fried chicken. It does happen sometimes.

If you just remember you start this process the night before, the fried chicken tastes

better.

 

Step 1

Buttermilk mixture

 

3 cups buttermilk

1 tbls salt

1 tbls black pepper

 

Step 2

3 tbls paprika

2 tbls cayenne powder/chipotle or Serrano powder or more

1 tbls mustard powder

1 tbls celery salt

Remove and leave ½ cup of this mixture aside before adding the water

Enough water to make a thick paste

Oil for frying

 

Remove chicken from buttermilk mixture and mix it in the hot flour paste.

Be patient, you have to let the chicken marinade in the fridge for at least, at least 4 hours.
