Take chicken out of buttermilk brine so not pat dry. dip in the egg mixture them dredge in flour mixture. Cook in pan ( do not crowd the chicken, leave enough space around so it will fry evenly) cook in batches, until cooked through. ( either the juices will run clear or cook to 180) place on a baking sheet and keep warm in a oven heated to 250.
