Best Southern Fried Chicken Recipe 🔥Recipe👇👇


3 cups of buttermilk

Peanut oil for frying

3 cups flour

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)

3-4 lbs chicken pieces (drumsticks, thighs, wings, and/or breasts)


Marinate Chicken: In a large bowl, soak the chicken pieces in buttermilk for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results. This will make the chicken super tender and flavorful.

Prepare Oil: In a deep frying pan or pot, heat the peanut oil over medium heat to about 350°F (175°C).

Mix Flour and Seasonings: In a separate large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. Mix them well.

Dredge Chicken: Remove chicken pieces from the buttermilk, allowing excess to drip off. Dredge each piece in the seasoned flour mixture, ensuring it's fully coated.

Fry Chicken: Carefully place the coated chicken pieces into the hot oil. Fry in batches to avoid overcrowding. Cook until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 10-12 minutes for wings and drumsticks, 14-16 minutes for breasts and thighs.

Drain and Serve: Once cooked, remove the chicken pieces from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil. Let them rest for a few minutes.

Serve the fried chicken hot with your favorite sides, like mashed potatoes, green beans, or coleslaw.
