“The Best Fried Chicken Recipe”


2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons paprika

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

4 cups vegetable oil, for frying

4 lbs chicken pieces (legs, thighs, breasts, wings)

2 cups buttermilk


In a large bowl, mix together the flour, paprika, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. This is the key dry ingredients for the best crispy fried chicken recipe.

Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl or sealable plastic bag, and pour the buttermilk over the chicken. Allow the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight. The buttermilk marinade will tenderize the chicken and add flavor, making this recipe the best fried chicken recipe.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Using tongs, remove the chicken pieces from the buttermilk, allowing any excess to drip off. Dip the chicken pieces in the flour mixture, pressing the flour mixture onto the chicken to coat it well.

Carefully place the chicken pieces in the hot oil, being sure not to overcrowd the skillet. Fry the chicken for 10-12 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F (74 degrees C) and the skin is golden brown and crispy.

Remove the chicken from the oil and place it on a wire rack or paper towel-lined plate to drain off any excess oil.

Serve the crispy fried chicken hot, with your favorite dipping sauce and sides.

This recipe is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, and is perfect for parties, picnics, or any special occasion. The combination of spices and the buttermilk marinade gives the chicken a flavorful and tender taste, while the crispy, golden brown coating adds the perfect crunch. This recipe can also be modified to suit your personal preferences, by adjusting the level of spices or by adding additional seasonings.
