How to make it

  • 1. Soak chicken overnight (at least 8 hours and up to two days) in buttermilk with onions, herbs, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
  • 2. Drain chicken in a colander, leaving some herbs on chicken. In a large paper or plastic (Sturdy) bag, mix flour with seasonings, Meanwhile, heat 2 cups oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet cast iron (About 350°F).
  • 3. Place chicken pieces in bag with flour and shake until thoroughly coated. Add chicken to hot pan and fry on 1 side for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown, and then use tongs to turn the pieces over and fry for another 10-12 minutes, again until golden brown.
  • Be careful to keep the oil hot enough to fry the chicken, but not so high as it burns the chicken. Try to keep the oil at 350 to 375 degrees
  • 4. Use tongs to remove chicken from pan. Place on a rack over a cookie sheet or broiling pan for the excess oil to drain. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serves 8.

    I think you need to check your instructions - you have to keep the oil between "250" to 375 degrees. Don't you mean 350 not 250.
