This Buttermilk Fried Chicken is delicious! But wait where can I buy the Buttermilk in the Philippines? Don’t worry though.. If you can’t get your hands on a buttermilk, here is the best alternative I use: 1 cup milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar. Combine together and let sit for 5 minutes to let it curdle. (You may also use plain yogurt).
Anyway.. What is Buttermilk? It is the tart or sour liquid left after the butterfat has been removed from whole milk or cream after churning. And people who tried this.. got the best fried chicken resulting from an overnight soak in buttermilk marinade. Yes it’s true.. its the Best fried chicken nom nom – flavorful, juicy and super crispy.
This recipe is an American style fried chicken, but if its hard to find all the spices mentioned, the shortcut is to use Crispy fry breading mix.. and use the same buttermilk marinade for chicken mentioned below (the other herbs can be optional such as dried sage and use your favorite herbs)
