Recipe for Buttermilk Fried Chicken

1 (3-3 ½ lb.) whole chicken cut into pieces

2 cups buttermilk

2 tablespoons Tabasco/hot sauce

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon each (dried tarragon, thyme, garlic powder)

1 ½ cup flour

salt, ground pepper, paprika

1 cup finely crushed corn flakes

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

canola oil for frying

Preparation Method

Put chicken pieces into a 1-gallon zip lock plastic bag. Combine buttermilk, tabasco, salt, tarragon, thyme, and garlic powder and pour over the chicken. Thoroughly coat chicken and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Spray wire rack with nonstick spray and place on-top of a large cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Pour enough oil in a 12 inch cast-iron skillet to cover the bottom by 1/8 to ¼ nch. Heat oil over medium high heat until hot but not smoking.

Drain chicken in strainer and discard buttermilk. Combine flour in large shallow bowl with salt, pepper and paprika. In another bowl combine crushed corn flakes and parmesan cheese. Lightly coat chicken in flour being sure to remove excess. Then roll the chicken in corn flake crumbs and firmly press to make sure each piece is thoroughly coated. Starting with dark meat, place chicken in heated oil and fry until light and golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to wire rack. Place in oven and bake chicken for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (170 degrees)
