Cooking Time15 min

Ingredients

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 5 teaspoons salt
  • 4 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 3 pounds fryer chicken, skinned
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 5 cups peanut oil

Instructions

  1. Remove backbone from fryer and cut chicken into 8 pieces.
     
  2. In a 1 gallon resealable plastic bag, mix buttermilk, Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of dry mustard, 1 teaspoon of cayenne and 1 teaspoon of black pepper.
     
  3. Add chicken pieces. Seal bag, eliminating air. Turn bag to coat chicken evenly.
     
  4. Refrigerate at least 1 day and up to 2 days, turning plastic bag occasionally.
     
  5. Whisk flour, baking powder, garlic powder, remaining 1 tablespoons of onion powder, 4 teaspoons of salt, 3 teaspoons of dry mustard, 3 teaspoons of cayenne (I omit the cayenne from the flour mixture. Too hot for me.) and 1 1/2 teaspoons of black pepper in 13x9x2-inch glass dish.
  6. With marinade still clinging to chicken pieces (do not shake off excess), add chicken to flour mixture; turn to coat thickly.
     
  7. Let chicken stand in flour mixture for 1 hour, turning chicken occasionally to re-coat with flour mixture.
     
  8. Pour oil to depth of 1 1/4" into deep 10-12-inch diameter pot. Attach a deep fry thermometer. Heat oil over medium-high heat to 350F degrees.
     
  9. Add 4 pieces of chicken, skinned side down, to oil.
     
  10. Reduce heat to medium-low and fry 5 minutes, adjusting heat to maintain oil temperature between 280 and 300 degrees (oil should bubble constantly around chicken).
     
  11. Using wooden spoons, turn chicken over. Fry 7 minutes.
     
  12. Turn chicken over again. Fry until deep golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes longer.
     
  13. Using same spoons, transfer chicken to a large rack set on baking sheet. (To prevent the crust from breaking and to keep moisture sealed in, use wooden spoons rather than tongs or a fork to turn over the chicken piecesas they fry).
     
  14. Reheat oil to 350F degrees. Repeat frying with remaining 4 pieces of chicken.
