Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Growing up this was my dad’s favorite meal! He always requested it for his birthday and my mom would always make it for him! Because of that it will always have a little place in my heart!

Buttermilk Fried Chicken


salt and pepper
vegetable oil


Pound the chicken breasts down so they are even and a little thinner in width then grab a ziplock baggie and place the chicken in the back. Cover the chicken with buttermilk. Place in the fridge and let marinade overnight or all day.
Once it is time to cook grab a skillet and pour vegetable oil in it. Covering the bottom and thick enough to cover the entire chicken breast.
Grab a plate and dump some flour on it. Season flour with salt and pepper and paprika if you want a good kick. 
Then take one chicken breast out of the buttermilk marinade and dip in the flour both sides. Then place in the oil to fry. Fry the chicken until it is done or until the chicken reaches an internal temp of 170 degrees F. 
Then remove chicken from oil and place on a paper towel to soak up some of the grease. Then repeat the steps and fry up all the chicken.
Serve with mashed potatoes!
