Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place the chicken into a large ziplock bag. Add buttermilk and refrigerate for 1 hour. In another ziplock bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Toss the chicken, one at a time, in the flour and place on wax paper for 15 minutes. Heat about 1/2 inch of oil in a skillet. Add chicken and brown on both sides. Reduce heat, cover and cook the chicken for 25-30 minutes. Turn the chicken every 5 minutes. Remove the chicken and pour out the oil leaving about 1/4 cup of drippings with the crunchies.
  • To make the Gravy:
  • In the hot drippings, stir in the flour, salt and pepper. Add the milk and water. Stir and cook until it reaches your desired thickness.

    Mmmmm, mmmmm good! This is how I prepare my fried chicken and always have ever since I woke up to using zip lock bags ;) I toss in a few more seasonings but it's basically the same. High 5!

    Just a note to answer morninlite's question...I put the skin side down first when frying chicken to get a start on a good crust. If you're cooking legs (like I usually am for the kids), the side doesn't matter, but I do try to brown all the sides when I turn it during cooking. Hope this helps. You don't need the Colonel for good chicken- you can do it!

    I've always had problems making fried chicken, I usually let the Colonel do it! Does it matter which side, bone or skin that you put down first?
