“Marinating the chicken in buttermilk is the secret to making this Southern-style fried chicken tender and juicy.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl, add enough buttermilk to cover the chicken.
  2. Cover with saran and marinade for several hours or ideally overnight.
  3. Combine the gluten flour and seasonings.
  4. You may not use all the seasoned flour so evenly spread some on a plate (add more as needed).
  5. Dredge each chicken piece in the flour, evenly coating, shake off the excess.
  6. Fill a large skillet with 1 inch of oil. When hot, fry the chicken in batches until golden brown, about 5 minutes , turn to evenly brown.
  7. Do not overcrowd the pan.
  8. Drain on wire rack on cookie sheet. Draining on paper will make it soggy and greasy.
  9. Arrange the chicken on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
  10. Finish in a pre-heated 350F oven until the juices run clear and no longer pink near the bones; about 10-15 minutes.
  11. Time may vary depending on the size of the chicken pieces.
  12. Amounts of seasoned flour can be save for future use.
