Fried Chicken Recipe Ingredients
- 1 fryer, cut up
- 1 ½ cups buttermilk
- 2 cups flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon savory
Fried Chicken Recipe Directions
- Soak the chicken pieces in the buttermilk for at least 2 hours in the fridge, turning now and then to make sure it all gets covered in the buttermilk.
- Mix up the flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and savory in a large zipper bag. (Mom used a paper bag but a zipper bag is much easier.)
- When you are ready to start frying, put ¼ cup of oil in a skillet.
- Heat up the oil over medium heat.
- Put one or two pieces of chicken in the bag at a time and shake to cover with the flour mixture.
- Add to the pan and brown the chicken pieces, turning to brown on both sides.
- Try not to let the chicken pieces touch each other. Remove chicken pieces as they are browned so you have room for more pieces.
- After all the chicken has been browned, add about ½ cup water to the pan, being careful because it will steam.
- Add all the browned chicken pieces to the pan and cover.
- Simmer for about 45 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 180 degrees F.
Variation: If you want to spice it up a bit add ½ teaspoon or more of cayenne pepper.
