Laura Ashley’s Kentucky Fried Chicken

Some say the way to a man’s heart is through his belly, and my fried chicken would say that’s accurate! The first meal I ever cooked for my husband was fried chicken, and he said no one had ever made fried chicken like his grandma until me. It was love at first bite. I have to thank my mamaw and mom for teaching me how to make amazing fried chicken! Hope you love it too!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 4 cups whole buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 2 10oz boxes Kentucky Kernel Seasoned Flour
    Oil for Frying
  • Recipe

    In a large bowl, whisk together buttermilk, paprika and cayenne. Submerge the chicken into the buttermilk mixture, cover and refrigerate 4-12 hours. Add the seasoned flour to a large bowl or double-bagged brown paper bags. Drain the chicken from the buttermilk mixture and add to the flour. Discard the buttermilk. Shake/coat the chicken until covered well then press the flour into the chicken. To a large skillet, add oil to at least a 2-inch depth and heat to 380-400°F. Add the chicken to the hot oil one piece at a time. Cook on both sides until chicken registers with an internal temperature of 165°F. Chicken will likely be done in this order, wings, white meat cutlets, legs, then thighs. Serve with your favorite side dishes.

    We have made this several time and it’s the best. Reminds me of what my mother and grandmother used to make.
