Southern fried chicken
6 to 8 pieces of chicken
2 C buttermilk
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. paprika
3 large eggs
2 C flour
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 large Ziploc bag
oil for frying
Take all chicken pieces and lightly season them with salt and pepper and set aside. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs and set aside. In a large, shallow bowl, combine flour and all remaining ingredients and mix well. Place half of flour seasoning mixture into Ziploc bag; reserve other half in the bowl for later. Dip chicken pieces in buttermilk and place them in Ziploc bag with half of flour mixture, seal bag and shake well to coat. Place coated chicken on a cookie sheet or tray. Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture, then in reserved flour mixture in the bowl taking care to thoroughly coat chicken. Repeat with all remaining chicken pieces.
In large semi deep skillet, fill halfway with oil. Heat until very hot but not boiling – about 325 degrees. Place chicken in oil and fry until it’s golden brown on outside and juices run clear on inside. Drain on wire rack. Serve immediately.
