• 6 chicken thighs
• 6 chicken drumsticks
• 3 cups buttermilk
• 1/2 cup Buffalo Hot Sauce optional
• 2 teaspoons salt
• 1 teaspoon pepper
•3 cups all-purpose flour
•1/2 cup cornstarch
•1 tablespoon salt
•1 tablespoon paprika
•2 teaspoons onion powder
•2 teaspoons garlic powder
•1 teaspoon dried oregano
•1 teaspoon dried basil
•1 teaspoon white pepper
•1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
•1 quart vegetable oil for frying
1️⃣In a large mixing bowl, whisk together buttermilk, hot sauce (optional, for added flavor), salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Add in chicken pieces. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours.
2️⃣When ready to cook, pour the vegetable oil in a skillet until it is about 3/4 inch deep. Heat to 350 degrees.
3️⃣Prepare the breading by combining the flour, cornstarch, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil, white pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, and salt in a gallon sized resealable plastic bag or shallow dish. Mix it thoroughly.
4️⃣Dip each piece of seasoned chicken into the wet ingredients. Shake it gently to remove the excess. Place it in the breading mix and coat thoroughly. Tap off the excess.
5️⃣Place the breaded chicken into the 350 degree oil. Fry 3 or 4 pieces at a time. The chicken will drop the temperature of the oil so keep it as close to 350 degrees as possible. Fry each piece for 14 minutes, turning each piece over about every 2 minutes, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
6️⃣Remove from the oil and place on paper towels. Let them rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.
