Ingredients

  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 quart of low fat buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon of kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoonsof cracked black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of Hungarian paprika
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 2 cups of flour
  • Vegetable oil or vegetable shortening for frying

Directions

  • Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl and pour the buttermilk over them.
  • Make sure they are all coated.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  • Pour the oil into a large heavy bottomed deep skillet or stockpot to a depth of 1-inch and heat to 360 degrees on a thermometer.
  • Working in batches, carefully place several pieces of chicken in the oil and fry for about 3 or 4 minutes on each side until the coating is a golden brown.
  • Don’t crowd the pieces.
  • Remove the chicken from the oil and place on a metal baking rack that is on top of a cookie sheet that has sides. (I cover the cookie sheet with foil)
  • Always allow the oil to return to the 360 degrees before frying more chicken.
  • When all chicken is fried, bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, until the chicken is no longer pink inside.
  • Serve hot.

Notes

This is a favorite recipe of my family. Tastes as good as my Grandma's did.
