Cooking with Suhru: La Crescent and Buttermilk Friend Chicken, an unexpectedly perfect pairing!
  • 12 pieces chicken
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsps onion powder
  • 2 tsps garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together: buttermilk, hot sauce, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp pepper. Add Chicken pieces, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours.

  2. When ready to cook, pour vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet filling until it is approximately 3/4 inch deep and heat to 350°F.

  3. Prepare breading by combining flour, cornstarch, 1 tbsp salt, 1 tbsp paprika, 2 tsp onion powder, 2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp dried oregano, 1 tsp dried basil, 1 tsp pepper, and1 tsp cayenne pepper.

  4. One at a time, remove chicken from buttermilk marinade, shake off, place in flour mixture and coat thoroughly.

  5. Be sure to shake off any excess flour before frying.

  6. Once oil has reached 350°F, place chicken in oil (cook in batches of 3-4 pieces). The chicken will drop the temperature of the oil so try to keep it as close to 350°F as possible, adjusting as needed.

  7. Fry chicken for 14 minutes, turning half way through. Chicken is fully cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.

  8. After 14 minutes remove from oil and let rest on paper towels or a drying rack for at least 10 minutes before serving.

  9. Serve with a cold glass of Suhru Wines La Crescent and enjoy, cheers!
