Tips/Tricks

  • the longer you leave the chicken in the buttermilk the juicer it will be
  • don't crowd the pan when cooking chicken as this will lower the temperature of oil and leave you with soggy fried chicken
  • using a thermometer to check temperature of oil will help you cook the oil at correct temperature
  • when frying chicken you need enough oil to cover the chicken to cook it evenly
