Southern Style Buttermilk Chicken. My Version.

Southern Style Buttermilk Chicken

This is my second time to make this crispy chicken. I have used 2 recipes I found online which I mixed and matched the ingredients and adjusted the method to satisfy my taste. I’m pretty satisfied with this in terms of taste and crunchiness! Sure is best served hot or even cold, yes a great picnic food too!
I must admit though that this time I added an extra ingredient to my chicken, you’ll find it in the method below. By the way, there is no gravy as the chicken is ‘fat’ enough for me….no gravy means no extra cross training, lol!


Marinade mix:
8pieces chicken legs, thighs and legs sliced apart
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cups buttermilk

Flour seasoning:
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried oregano
3 tbsp panko bread crumbs. This is optional, I just wanted extra crunch on the skin..yummy!
