  1. Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry. Pour buttermilk in a shallow dish or bowl and add chicken pieces. Place in refrigerator and marinate overnight.
  2. When ready to prepare, mix potato flakes, flour, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Dredge marinated chicken in potato/flour mixture to coat. Set aside for 15 minutes to allow coating to stick.
  3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Fry chicken slowly over medium heat until golden brown and juices run clear.

This was ok. I thought it tasted bland. Used boneless skinless breasts and dipped in egg to keep coating on. I won't make this again. My husband liked it though.



I thought I followed the recipe carefully, but I had the following problems: 1. breading needed more seasoning. If I were to make again, which I probably won't, I would definitely add more herbs & spices. 2. breading did not stick when I fried. 3. recipe called for 1/2 cup of oil, which was not nearly enough to cook. I tripled the amount of oil, which helped because I didn't have to continually turn the chicken, thus causing the coating to fall off. I don't think I will make this recipe again.



really pretty good. everyone like it. the outside has a crispy outside. the only downside was that the skin was not crispy.
