Hey , my cookies today we are going to be making some crispy and juicy southern fried chicken .
Let's cook .
Of course , we need chicken .
I'm using drums and thighs , use whatever part of the bird you want .
Just make sure you remove the excess fat and clean it .
Then we need to make a spice blend .
I'm using Cajun seasoning some poultry seasoning .
I'm using Chef Paul's poultry magic , some garlic powder , onion powder .
Wait , I think the one before was onion and that's garlic .
It don't matter .
Some lemon pepper , a little bit of celery salt and finally a little bit of paprika now mix it all together .
That's pretty .
I like those earth tones , right ?
Sprinkle half of this shit stuff on the chicken and mix it together really , really well coat it .
Well , get it all on there on the front and the back and all that , then pour on the buttermilk and don't be afraid if some of the spices come off .
Don't worry about it .
It's cold , that buttermilk is gonna suck it all back in there anyway , just take this bowl , cover it up and pop it in the refrigerator .
You can do it overnight , but at least four hours .
Now I'm using um self rising flour because the baking powder in self rising flour makes the chicken extra crispy .
So I'm putting that in my batter pro you can use a bag , brown paper bag .
It don't matter a shallow dish , whatever you have is just fried chicken .
Now , I'm adding corn starch because that makes it even more crispy .
We want this crunchy bird today .
All right , my baby .
Now , add in the rest of that seasoning blend and mix it together .
Really , really well .
Now we can take the chicken out of the buttermilk .
Give it a little shake .
Do not rinse , place it into your flour , your batter , pro whatever you're using , give it a shake , flip , whatever dredge it really well in that flour .
So it's evenly coated to fry my chicken .
I have my oil heated to 350 degrees .
I'm using canola oil and I'm gonna carefully place my chicken pieces in .
I'm using a deep fryer .
You can also use a pan , a frying pan in a deep fryer .
It takes a little less time .
Dark meat takes longer than white meat to cook .
So this dark meat took about 15 minutes in my deep fryer .
However , when your chicken is done , it will start to float and also you will hear a quieter sound from the frying .
It will quiet down and you'll know your chicken is ready , but please make sure you cook it all the way through .
I am not responsible for you eating some raw bird .
That's not coop's fault y'all get it and when it's done , go ahead and drain it on some paper towels or a wired rack and cookies .
You will have some good old southern fried chicken .
