This chicken recipe is one that you will return to over and over again. At my house we love fried chicken but I don’t love frying chicken because no matter how careful I am I still get burned every time. Now that I found this recipe from Carlsbad Cravings I can have my fried chicken without getting burned. This chicken is so tasty and it is super easy and I don’t get burned so this is declared a winner.
I have used Shake and Bake on chicken for years but this recipe has you soaking the chicken in a spiced buttermilk for a few hours, (I put mine in to the night before so they have plenty of soaking time and they get to soak up all that flavor and the buttermilk really makes the chicken tender.
Other than the soaking time the recipe is pretty quick and if you put it in the soak over night you can have the chicken on the table in about 35 minutes. We like it with cooked greens and some hot out of the oven cornbread. Mmmm, I think I know what I am making in the next couple of days.
