Buttermilk Fried Chicken
Marinating the chicken in buttermilk makes the meat moist and flavorful. Chicken breasts cook faster than other parts, so fry them separately in the last batch.
A deep-fry thermometer is the best way to monitor the temperature of the oil. Adjust burner heat during cooking to maintain a steady temperature.
For fried chicken with less fat and fewer calories, remove the skin before marinating.
