  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons ground celery seed
  • 2 tablespoons smoked hickory salt
  • 1/4 cup meat tenderizer

Directions
Rub:

Place all ingredients into a resealable container and mix until thoroughly combined.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cover each piece of chicken in buttermilk, then lemon-pepper, no-salt seasoning and Big Mama's Rub, to taste. Place in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place into the refrigerator overnight so that the meat can absorb some of the liquid.

Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and dredge in self-rising flour.

Fry the chicken in a 1/2-inch of canola oil in the bottom of a roasting pan in the preheated oven. Fry the chicken for 15 minutes per side
