Buttermilk Country Fried Chicken

Recipe from: June
Servings: 8

Marinade:
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
½ teaspoon salt
1 garlic clove, minced.

Chicken:
2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast halves and/or thighs
¾ cup flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon paprika
oil for frying

In large shallow nonmetal dish or large resealable food storage plastic bag, combine all marinade ingredients; mix well. Add chicken pieces and turn to coat. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight to marinate.

In pie pan, combine flour and all remaining chicken ingredients except oil; mix well. Heat about ½ inch oil in 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat until hot.

Remove chicken pieces from marinade a few at a time, allowing excess to drip off. Roll chicken in flour mixture until well coated. Add chicken to hot oil in skillet, a few pieces at a time until all pieces are in skillet. Cover; cook over medium-high heat for 10 minutes or until deep golden brown.

Discard marinade.

Uncover skillet. Turn chicken and cook an additional 5 to 8 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and the juices run clear. Drain chicken on several layers of paper towels.

Serve warm, or refigerate and serve cold.
