Everyone loves some good fried chicken, but this old fashioned buttermilk recipe will take your love to the next level. YouTuber OldManCooking invented this recipe to re-create delicious buttermilk fried chicken at home that is sure to get mouths watering.

Ingredients:
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
3 cups buttermilk
3 tablespoons hot sauce
Cooking oil

To start, wash and dry your chicken cutlets and place them in a bowl, covering them evenly with a little salt and pepper.

Once seasoned, pour three cups of buttermilk into the bowl to cover the chicken and add three tablespoons of your favorite hot sauce. Leave the covered chicken to marinate in the fridge for at least three hours.

When the chicken is finished marinating, take three cups of flour, one tablespoon of salt, one tablespoon of pepper and one tablespoon of garlic powder. Stir the ingredients together with a fork in a large bowl to make sure it’s well mixed, and coat your chicken cutlets with the flour mixture.

Once your chicken is covered, grab a wok and fill it about halfway with cooking oil. Heat the oil until it’s around 350 degrees, add your chicken, and leave it to cook for around 10 minutes until it starts to brown.

Turn the chicken over to ensure it cooks evenly on both sides and cook for a further 10-15 minutes until it turns a crispy golden brown.
