5 pounds mixed chicken pieces (I prefer the legs and thighs)

3 cups buttermilk

2 tablespoons sambal

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup cornmeal

1 tablespoon coarse ground black peppercorn

1 tablespoon coarse ground coriander

1 tablespoon five spice

1 tablespoon salt

Salt to taste


  1. In a large bowl, mix chicken with milk and sambal. Let stand for 2 hours in the fridge. Mix the rest together. Preheat a fryer to 350 degrees. Pull out each piece of chicken and completely dredge in the flour mix. Fry 4 to 6 pieces at a time until GB&D. Check for doneness, will take about 8 minutes. Season lightly with salt.
