Crispy Buttermilk Chicken

Fried chicken is one of those food items that everyone loves! I grew up on soul food and fried chicken was staple in my household. I remember when I first taught myself how to cook, the first thing I wanted to make was fried chicken. I was sooooo excited and just knew my chicken was going to be good! Those poor chicken wings were the soggiest, greasiest wings I have ever had! LOL Just nasty! I was determine that day that I would learn and practice until I get it right. Move it along over 10 years later, I must say that I make some damn good fried chicken!!?? better than yours and ya Momma! LOL

  1. • One 3-pound fryer chicken, cut into pieces

    • 2 cups buttermilk

    • 6 cloves garlic, smashed

    • 1 large onion, sliced

    • 1 cup chopped mixed fresh herbs (parsley, tarragon, thyme)

    • 1 Seasoning Salt

    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

    • 2 cups flour

    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

    • 1/4 teaspoon onion salt

    • Sazon Seasoning

    • 3 cups vegetable

  2. Directions:

    Soak chicken in buttermilk with garlic, onions, herbs, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours. Drain in colander, leaving some herbs on chicken. In a large paper grocery bag, mix flour with seasonings. Meanwhile, heat 3 cups shortening in cast iron pan until 350 degrees. Place chicken pieces in bag with flour and shake, let sit 1 minute, then shake again. Add chicken to hot pan and fry on 1 side for 20 minutes, then turn to finish.

Be generous with the seasonings but not too generous where the chicken is salty. I do not use salt in my recipes rather spices, seasonings, herbs and seasonings.

Chicken so good make you want to smack somebody!
