If there’s one food that’s hard to disagree on, it’s fried chicken. Okay — you have to be talking with someone who eats meat and isn’t on some fad diet that restricts them from eating things that are downright delicious — but if they meet those two criteria, chances are you both like fried chicken.
So, should you find yourself in the company of another fan of chicken o’ the fried kind, try this version: Brined and Battered Buttermilk Fried Chicken. There are a few different parts to this recipe that make it stand out above the rest. First, the buttermilk brine gives the meat a milky juiciness that works perfectly with the crunch shell. Second, the baking powder and selected spices in the coating make it perfectly spicy. And finally, according to the recipe’s author, “Tastes so good, it makes you wanna slap yo momma.” Sounds good enough to us!
