Southern Fried Chicken


  • 6 chicken pieces (whatever parts you prefer)
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of parsley
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon adobo
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 large ziplock bag
  • Peanut oil for frying


  1. In a large ziplock bag, combine the flour, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, parsley, thyme, adobo, salt, and pepper. Shake the bag to mix the ingredients well.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk the eggs and buttermilk.
  3. Dip each piece of chicken into the buttermilk mixture, making sure to coat it well. Then put the chicken in a ziplock bag with the flour mixture and shake it until the chicken is evenly coated.
  4. Place the chicken on a wire rack and let stand for at least 15 minutes to allow the coating to set.
  5. Heat the peanut oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven to 350°F (175°C). Carefully place the chicken pieces into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pan.
  6. Fry the chicken for 12-15 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 74°C and the chicken is golden brown.
  7. Remove the chicken from the skillet and place it on a wire rack to cool for a few minutes.
  8. Serve the chicken hot with your favorite sauce or side dishes.
