The Food Lab's Southern Fried Chicken | If your ideal fried chicken comes from the Colonel then this is the recipe for you. We brine the chicken in seasoned buttermilk to make it extra tender and dredge it in a mixture of flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and spices before frying. The secret to an extra-crispy crust is to pour a few tablespoons of the buttermilk mixture into the flour—the clumps mean more surface area and more surface area means more crunch.
