    I am not a chicken-fryer. Seems like whatever I do, it's not tasty or has limp skin. THIS RECIPE has changed that! Even my Southern-born, Southern-fried, hubby approves. Crispy, flavorful, that tang from buttermilk adds a lot. I've printed off the recipe AND made a note in my cookbook to use this. Thank you, Martha, for Martha's Cooking School. That's where I saw the recipe last night and decided instead of roasting the chicken in my fridge, I was determined to fry it. Glad I did!

    I have made this chicken twice-both times it came out great. This is the first home made recipe that tastes as good as professionally cooked chicken. It is even beter the next day--warm or cold!!!
