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!

Here’s another quick recipe by Ro which is posted on her Instagram, just look for @THISPINAYCANCOOK


tweaked recipe from eatocracy & alton browns.

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour + more for kneading
1/2 tsp salt 2 tsp sugar or less
1 tbsp baking powder
1 bar butter unsalted very cold.cubed
1/4 cup cold milk 1/4 cup buttermilk or half & half

PROCEDURE: pre-heat oven at 425 degrees a food processor or your ninja (it can easily hold this recipe try two batch if you wanna make more) put all ingredients except the milk.
2 pulsate for couple of times then add the buttermilk & half half lil by lil. look for a “look” of a dry cottage cheese.
3. in a flat surface dust it with a lil flour then pour the loose dough then just knead the dough till it gets all incorporated.dont overknead.
4. with a rolling pin roll it then fold it then roll it then fold it. at fourth fold wrap it in a syran wrap then put it in the freezer for a minute or two just to get the butter solidify again. then do the same procedure at the fourth fold use a cookie cutter. then just knead the remaining and make more biscuits
5. bake for at least 10-15 minutes or until it gets golden brown serve hot with butter or honey like how my babygirl eat hers’.

happy baking myloves!
