I've been watching Ina Garten again. This really works. Fool-proof. Moist. Delicious.
The only catch is you gotta think ahead--marinating the chicken the night before you cook it. Or all morning for an evening meal. Oh.....And it makes a huge mess.
Buy a chicken and cut it up. Or buy the parts you like. Marinate it overnight in about a cup or so of buttermilk.
For lunch the next day:
Mix the coating: 2 cups of flour with 1 Tablespoon salt, 1 Tablespoon pepper, and 2 teaspoons garlic powder.
Dredge the chicken in the coating.
put about 2" oil in a cast iron skillet
Fry at 360 degrees for about 3 minutes each side, or until brown.
Place chicken on a cookie cooling rack placed over a baking pan..
Finish cooking in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes
