Fried Chicken Recipe: How to Make It

Let's learn how to make Perfect 'Fried Chicken' with the crispiest, most flavorful crunchy outside with moist and juicy meat on the inside.

Let’s talk about what you'll need to make this best-fried Chicken:


  • 1/2 cup Buffalo Hot Sauce optional
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 3 cups buttermilk

Dredging Mixture:

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1-quart vegetable oil for frying
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon salt


To make this recipe, follow these directions to prepare this easy Fried Chicken:

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together buttermilk, hot sauce (optional, for added flavor), salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Add in chicken pieces. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours.

When ready to cook, pour the vegetable oil in a skillet until it is about 3/4 inch deep. Heat to 350 degrees.

Prepare the breading by combining the flour, cornstarch, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil, white pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, and salt in a gallon-sized resealable plastic bag or shallow dish. Mix it thoroughly.

Working one at a time, remove chicken pieces from the buttermilk mixture. Shake it gently to remove the excess. Place it in the breading mix and coat thoroughly. Tap off the excess.

Place the breaded chicken into the 350-degree oil. Fry 3 or 4 pieces at a time. The chicken will drop the temperature of the oil so keep it as close to 350 degrees as possible. 

Fry each piece for 14 minutes, turning each piece about halfway through, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. 

Remove from the oil and place on paper towels. Let them rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.
