Fried Chicken

Serves 4 serves


  • 8 pieces of chicken, remove excess skin
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups plain flour seasoned (see below)
  • 1 litre peanut oil (as it has a high smoke point)


  • Place chicken pieces in a bowl and cover with buttermilk.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Remove chicken from buttermilk, shaking off excess.
  • Toss in flour. Then repeat (doing this twice will result in a yummy crispier coating).
  • Heat oil in a deep fryer (or in a deep saucepan).
  • When hot, add 3 pieces at a time and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until a nice rich, golden brown.
  • Place on a wire rack over a baking tray.
  • When all the chicken is fried, place in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.

Recipe Notes

You can just use flour seasoned with sea salt and pepper, but honestly, here is my favourite Fried Chicken Seasoning: Take 2 cups of plain flour and place it in a bag. Add 1 tablespoon Chinese 5 Spices and 1 teaspoon chilli flakes. Season with sea salt and cracked pepper and shake to combine.
