Fried chicken is a classic comfort food that everyone loves. But it can be tricky to get it right. The breading can be too thick or too thin, the oil can be too hot or too cold, and the chicken can end up dry or overcooked.

In this blog post, I’m going to share my secrets for making the perfect fried chicken, every time. With these tips, you’ll be able to make fried chicken that is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Place the chicken in a large bowl and cover with buttermilk. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
  3. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and dredge in the flour mixture. Be sure to coat all sides of the chicken.
  4. Heat a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add enough vegetable oil to fill the pot to a depth of about 2 inches. Heat the oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Carefully add the chicken to the hot oil and fry for 6-8 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Remove the chicken from the oil and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Here are some additional tips for making the perfect fried chicken:

  • Use bone-in, skin-on chicken pieces for the most flavorful and juicy fried chicken.
  • Make sure the chicken is completely dry before breading and frying. This will help the breading stick to the chicken and prevent it from becoming soggy.
  • Don’t overcrowd the pot when frying. This will lower the temperature of the oil and make the chicken soggy.
  • Fry the chicken in batches until it is golden brown and cooked through.
  • Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. This will help the juices redistribute throughout the meat.

I hope these tips help you make the perfect fried chicken, every time!
