- 1 whole chicken, cut in 8 pieces
- Fresh ground pepper
- 3 cups of flour
- Canola oil, for frying
- 1 quart of buttermilk
Season the chicken with salt and fresh ground pepper.
Place the chicken in the buttermilk to soak for at least 15 minutes or overnight depending on how much time you have. (Soaking makes the chicken more tender.)
On a large plate combine the flour with salt and pepper. Coat the chicken pieces completely in the flour mixture.
In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 1 inch of canola oil to 350 degrees.
Cook several pieces of chicken at a time for 6 minutes on each side, until the meat is no longer pink.
Drain the chicken well on paper towels and season with salt.
