Buttermilk Fried Chicken
Frequent contributor, Nancy Wise of Little Rock, Arkansas shared this homestyle recipe wtih us. She writes, "This recipe is full of down-home goodness…delicious warm from the skillet or wrapped in wax paper to savor cold as a picnic lunch."
1 c. buttermilk
3-1/2 lbs. chicken
1 c. plus 3 T. all-purpose flour
1-1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
oil for frying
1 c. milk
1-1/2 c. water
salt and pepper to taste
Pour buttermilk over chicken pieces in a large shallow dish; cover and refrigerate for one hour. Combine one cup flour, salt and pepper in a large plastic zipping bag. Drain chicken and add to bag, one piece at a time, shaking to coat. Place on wax paper; let stand for 15 minutes. Heat 1/4 inch oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook until golden on all sides. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 40 to 45 minutes, until juices run clear. Uncover; cook for an additional 5 minutes. Drain chicken on paper towels; keep warm. For gravy, pour off all except 1/4 cup drippings from skillet. Stir in remaining flour over low heat until well blended; gradually add milk. Slowly stir in water; bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for 2 minutes until thickened, stirring constantly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve gravy with chicken. Makes 6 servings.
