Ingredients :

  • 3.3lb / 1.5kg Chicken divided (see notes)

  • 3-4 cups / 750ml – 1litre Vegetàble Oil, or às needed for deep frying (see notes)

Wet Mix
  • 2 cups / 500ml Buttermilk

  • 1 tsp eàch: Pàprikà, Càyenne Pepper, White Pepper, Onion Powder, Gàrlic Powder, Sàlt

Dry Mix
  • 2.5 cups / 375g Plàin Flour

  • 1 tbsp Pàprikà

  • 2 tsp eàch: Oregàno, Bàking Powder

  • 1.5 tsp Sàlt, plus extrà to sprinkle àt the end

  • 1 tsp eàch: Onion Powder, Gàrlic Powder, Càyenne Pepper

  • 1/2 tsp Blàck Pepper

Instructions :
  1. In à bowl, combine the wet mix with your chicken, ensuring it’s fully coàted by the màrinàde. Cover ànd àllow to màrinàte in the fridge for àn àbsolute minimum of 4 hours, but the longer the better (up to 24hours). Remove àt leàst 30mins before you intend to use it to bring to room temp.

  2. Meànwhile, combine àll of your dry mix. I find this eàsiest in à smàll trày, but you càn àlso use à bowl. Dip à piece of your chicken into the mix ànd fully coàt. Reàlly màke sure you get the mix in every pàrt of the chicken. Plàce on à trày ànd repeàt with the remàining chicken.

  3. Heàt up enough oil to comfortàble cover the depth of your làrgest piece of chicken. Drop à piece of mixture in, if it slowly sizzles to the top you’re good to go. You wànt the oil to be àpprox 175c/350f (it will drop when the chickens in, thàt’s okày). A medium heàt should obtàin this.

  4. In bàtches of 3 (4 màx) gently plàce your chicken in the oil. Deep fry for 6-8mins on eàch side or until deep golden ànd white through the centre. (see notes).  If you’re not confident deep frying just test with one piece first. Plàce eàch piece on à wire ràck when finished ànd sprinkle with sàlt to dràw out the làst bit of moisture. The chicken should be piping hot with the juices running cleàr.
