Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl, then add the buttermilk, 1 tablespoon of the salt, 1 tablespoon of the pepper and 1 teaspoon of the paprika. Mix to combine. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.

In a large, deep pot or Dutch oven pour enough of the oil to fill the pot 3- to 4-inches. Heat over medium-high heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 350 degrees F. Set a cooling rack over a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, whisk to combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, the remaining 3/4 tablespoon salt, 1/2 tablespoon pepper and 1 tablespoon paprika. Whisk to combine the dredge.

Lift the chicken from the buttermilk, then coat the pieces completely in the flour. Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet or large plate.

Working in batches and being careful to not overcrowd the pot, add the legs and thighs to the hot oil and cook, turning and monitoring the oil temperature, until crisp and golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to the prepared rack. Add the wings and breast pieces to the oil and cook until deep golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to the rack, then drizzle with honey and serve.
