Why I Love This Recipe

Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside its just perfect how fried wings should be.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 (3- to 4-pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cups buttermilk
Self-rising flour
Vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika


Directions

1). Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken in a shallow dish or zip-top plastic bag, and add buttermilk. Cover or seal, and chill for at least 2 hours.


2). Remove chicken from buttermilk, discarding buttermilk. Dredge chicken in flour.


3). Pour oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches in a deep skillet or Dutch oven; heat to 360°. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time; cover and cook for 6 minutes. Uncover chicken, and cook 9 minutes. Turn chicken; cover and cook for 6 minutes. Uncover and cook 5 to 9 minutes, turning chicken the last 3 minutes for even browning, if necessary. Drain on paper towels.
