What you need:

8 chicken legs (or 8 pieces of chicken)

2 cups buttermilk

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon salt

1/2 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon white pepper

2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

oil for frying

2 cups all purpose flour




1. In a large bowl pour in buttermilk.


2. Add 1 tablespoon salt, 1/2 tablespoon white pepper and 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper. Mix well.


3. Add chicken, mix well and let sit in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight. The buttermilk acts as a tenderizer and makes the chicken flavorful and moist.


4. When ready to fry, grab a large bowl and combine remaining salt, white pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder. Mix well.


5. Shake off access buttermilk and dredge chicken in the flour. Make sure the chicken is evenly coated.


6. Place on a baking rack or large plate and let rest. You can let the chicken rest while your oil is preheating so about 6-8 minutes.


7. Heat oil in large skillet or pan to 350 degrees.


8. Add chicken and fry 7-9 minutes per side.


9. Flip and fry another 7-9 minutes.


10. Remove chicken and let drain on baking rack or paper towels for about 3 minutes.


11. Grab some hot sauce and dig in!
