Prep: 5min | Marination: 4h | Cooking: 30min

Complexity: 3/5


(serves 4)

  • 800g deboned chicken thigh, or chicken breast cut into 5cm size pieces

  • sunflower oil

For buttermilk marinade:

  • 500g buttermilk

  • 1 tbsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne

  • 1 tsp paprika

For flour breading:

  • 2 cups flour

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne

  • 1 tsp paprika


Combine buttermilk marinade ingredients and submerge chicken. Marinate between 30min and 4 hours.

Dredge the chicken into the breading mixture and place on a baking sheet to rest, 30min.

Meanwhile heat oven at 190°C.

Heat oil in a heavy-bottom pot. Once very hot, fry the chicken until golden on both sides, then place on a wire rack with a baking tray underneath. Finish the chicken in the oven for 30min (leave for an extra 10 if it isn't browning), flipping them over once.
