Step 1: Soak in buttermilk
Firstly remove all the excess moisture from your Chicken pieces patting them dry with paper towels. Pour the buttermilk over the chicken, then Cover it and refrigerate for at least an hour. For better results leave the chicken overnight.

Do not leave any part of the chicken without Coating. Remove from the bag and lay it on a sheet of waxed paper to dry. Continue this procedure with the remaining chicken.
Step 3: Let it rest
Give the Chicken extra time to rest at least 15 minutes you should do. During this time the moisture from the buttermilk will become evenly distributed, helping the coating adhere.
Step 4: Fry the Chicken
Now time to fry the chicken, pour oil into a deep vessel according to your quantity of chicken. Heat 1/2-in. of oil over medium heat until it reaches 350°. Carefully add a few pieces of chicken into the oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook, uncovered, for 7-8 minutes per side. Turn occasionally until the coating turn’s dark golden brown and the meat is no longer pink.
Step 5: Drain the chicken
Drain the fried Chicken on paper towels. After frying your first batch of chicken, then wait to let the temperature of the oil return to 350° before adding the next batch. Depending on how much chicken you have, you may have to fry in a few shifts.
Step 6: Time to serve fried chicken
Before serving let your chicken rest for a few minutes. Resting also helps the outer coating crisp and excess oil drain. That makes the chicken more delicious. Perfectly crisp, better-than-any-restaurant chicken and your family will love this dish. Enjoy!
