Crispy fried chicken is a cinch to make at home, and this recipe for the comfort food classic is our best ever!

Ingredients

Marinade

Coating

Spicy Mayonnaise

Preparation

Marinade

  1. In a bowl, combine the buttermilk, salt and spices. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 12 hours.

Coating

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, spices and salt.
  2. Preheat the oil in a deep fryer to 325°F (165°C). Line a baking sheet with paper towels.
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade without letting it all drip off. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture. Dip for a second time in the marinade and dredge again in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Set aside on a baking sheet.
  4. Fry 4 to 5 pieces at a time for 15 minutes. Watch out for splattering. A kitchen thermometer inserted in the centre of a piece of chicken without touching bone should read 82°F (180°C). Drain on the paper towel. Repeat with the remaining chicken.

Spicy Mayonnaise

  1. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Serve with the fried chicken.
