Crispy Fried Chicken Recipe

Move over KFC, this Crispy Fried Chicken Recipe is insanely juicy on the inside with an outrageous CRUNCH to each bite!

This Fried Chicken Recipe is by far the tastiest I’ve ever made. My whole family agrees with me too.

It’s perfectly crispy on the outside, with little flakey bits of breading that are seasoned just right. Let’s not forget about the juicy, tender chicken on the inside. So good!

Fried Chicken Marinade:

The first thing you’ll want to do is marinate your chicken pieces in a quick buttermilk mixture overnight. Here’s what you’ll need…

Bone-in, skin-on, Chicken pieces: I like to use a combination of legs, thighs, breasts and wings
Buttermilk: necessary to make the chicken nice and tender
Hot Sauce: optional, but gives the chicken amazing flavor
Egg: lightly beaten
Salt: crucial in helping tenderize the chicken

How Long Should The Chicken Marinate?

Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bag and squish together, getting all the pieces nice and coated.
Refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours (the longer the better).

The buttermilk will tenderize the chicken, creating a juicy inside that is simply to-die-for.

PRO TIP: You can avoid using a plastic bag by marinating in a glass bowl covered tightly with plastic wrap. Avoid using a metal bowl though, as this may affect the acidity from the buttermilk.

Better Than KFC Fried Chicken Seasoning!
