My Best Fried Chicken


If I could choose a final meal on this earth, it would be my Grandmother's fried chicken. Something so seemingly simple is actually very complex. Achieving moist, crunchy, well seasoned bird is the goal of every cook and here’s how I do it. Pro tip: This recipe works extremely well on quail.

Chicken Spice

1/4 cup Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt

2 tbl Smoked Paprika

1 tbl Black Pepper

1 tbl Garlic Powder

1 tbl Onion Powder

1/2 tbl Cayenne Pepper


Mix together and store in airtight container for up to a month.

Chicken Brine

2 cups Full Fat Buttermilk

1 cup White Wine

1/2 cup Crystal Hot Sauce


Combine and cover chicken for at least 4 hours no longer than 12.

Chicken Flour

4 cups All Purpose Flour

1 cup Corn Starch


Combine well and coat brined bird.

Happy Cooking!
