Buttermilk fried chicken is enjoyed often at our house; we do love our fried chicken hot or cold.
The buttermilk marinade used for the chicken will result in tender, juicy chicken. My mama says for the best results use Crisco shortening and a cast iron skillet. She also says when cooking and baking the cheapest ingredients are not always the best! Mama knows what is best!
If you like a little spice in your food, add to the flour mixture, cayenne pepper and garlic powder or to buttermilk marinade a couple dashes of hot sauce at the heat level you like!
Side dishes are unlimited with fried chicken, some we enjoy are potato salad, cole slaw, mashed potatoes, pinto beans, green beans, corn on cob, and top it off with cream gravy and homemade biscuits. The list goes on and on! Are you hungry yet?
