Nashville Fried  Chicken

4 hours 30 minutes


Step 1

Place the chicken tenders in a bowl. (If you use boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut them into long strips.) Add cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Cajun spice, oregano, salt, pepper and buttermilk.

Step 2

Mix well and marinate for 4 hours in the refrigerator.

Step 3

Combine all-purpose flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and salt in a large bowl, stir to combine well. Set it aside.

Step 4

 After 4 hours, transfer the chicken strips out of the marinade and coat them evenly with the flour mixture in the bowl. Place the chicken strips on the plate and let them sit for 20 minutes at room temperature until the coating is absorbed.

Step 5

After resting, dip the chicken strips in the flour mixture one more time before frying.

Step 6

 Heat cooking oil to 350°F - 375°F (176°C-190°C) in a frying pan. Deep fry the chicken for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Dish out the fried chicken to a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Drizzle the Spiced Oil over the fried chicken and serve immediately.

Step 7

 After frying the chicken tenders, let the frying oil cool down for 10 minutes. Combine 1 tablespoon of the frying oil with cayenne pepper and paprika in a sauce dish. Whisk well.
