Southern Fried Chicken

Sure, here’s a recipe for Southern Fried Chicken:


  • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl and pour the buttermilk over them, making sure each piece is fully coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
  3. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk, letting any excess drip off. Dredge each piece in the flour mixture, making sure it’s coated on all sides. Place the coated chicken on a wire rack and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, which will help the coating adhere better during frying.

  1. Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F. Carefully add a few chicken pieces at a time, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry for 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fried chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Repeat until all the chicken is cooked.
  2. Serve the fried chicken hot with your favorite sides, such as mashed potatoes, coleslaw, or biscuits.

Enjoy your delicious Southern Fried Chicken!
