Buttermilk Fried ChickenThis is our absolute favorite way to fry chicken. The dutch oven is pretty much like frying in a cast-iron skillet. It makes your chicken very crispy and fry evenly. Make sure that when you are frying your chicken to not overcrowd your dutch oven. This will cause the temperature of the oil to decrease and prolong the cooking process. This can also cause your chicken to stick together. If you do not have a dutch oven, fry the chicken in the frying receptacle that you normally use. As always, we hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
