Cajun Fried Chicken

Posted in : Chicken, Dinner on by : Master Chef

This Cajun fried chicken recipe is really crispy spicy deep fried goodness thanks to its Southern spices and buttermilk bath. Quite literally the best we’ve had.

This Cajun fried chicken is bathed in buttermilk and spiced ever so slightly, making it memorably moist inside, superlatively crisp outside, and gosh darn perfect through and through.

1/4 cup Tabasco
3 cups buttermilk
3 teaspoons salt, divided
1 (2 1/2- to 3-pound) chicken, cut up into 8 pieces
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
oil for deep-frying
