Pop Century Resort: Buttermilk Fried Chicken
8 raw chicken pieces (wings, legs & thighs)
3 cups buttermilk
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups all-purpose flour
4 cups Vegetable Shortening
ground black pepper
Place chicken pieces in a shallow container, skin side down. Pour buttermilk over the chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and season both sides with salt and pepper.
Place the beaten eggs and flour into two separate shallow dishes. Add 1 tablespoon salt & 1 tablespoon pepper to the flour. Mix well.
Melt the Shortening in a deep frying pan so that it is at least 2-inches deep. Heat it until the oil begins to lightly smoke. Dredge the chicken pieces first in the flour, then the egg, and then the flour again. Place the chicken pieces into the hot oil and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, until the skin is golden brown. Transfer the pieces to a foil-lined baking sheet and bake in oven for 40-45 minutes, or until cooked through to the bone.
