Yield: 4 servings
Chicken, cut into 8 pieces (one 3-pound bird)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 cup flour
1 cup cornflakes, crumbled
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Vegetable oil as needed
Soak chicken pieces in buttermilk 2 to 3 hours, refrigerated.
In large bowl, combine dry ingredients.
Remove 1 piece of chicken from buttermilk, allowing excess to drip off. Coat with dry mixture; set aside. Repeat with all pieces.
In deep skillet, heat 3/4-inch-deep oil to 350 degrees F.
Fry 2 to 3 chicken pieces at a time, 10 to 15 minutes, turning to ensure even cooking. Drain on paper towels.
Serve 2 pieces per order.
