What is a picnic without fried chicken?

12 pieces of chicken

1 1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons buttermilk powder
2 sticks butter
salt and pepper to taste

  • In a large bowl combine salt and warm water to cover the chicken pieces.
  • Soak for 1 hour.
  • In a large cast iron pan melt one stick of butter.
  • Drain chicken pieces and pat dry.
  • In a large Ziploc bag combine the flour and buttermilk powder.
  • Dredge chicken pieces in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess.
  • When butter is melted and hot arrange chicken pieces to fit into the pan.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • DO NOT turn chicken pieces until you see blood.
  • Salt and pepper to taste on the second side.
  • Cook until golden on both sides and you cannot see any blood.
