Anyone out there who hates fried chicken (not the vegetarians)..No I didn't see any hands rising up. I know everyone loves fried foods, specially chicken. We are a great fan of fried chicken. I always try new variation of fried chicken whenever I make it. Because I am on a mission to find the best fried chicken recipe in the world. So here comes my experimental part, I made this couple of weeks back and I am telling ya, this is one of the best fried chicken I have ever tasted.
I don't know where I came across this recipe, but this was in my mind for a while. So when I decided to give it a try, I added some of my indian masala and spices and customized it as per my taste. The end result was amazing and hubby gave me his signature wow smile. I used buttermilk as the base of the marination because the acid in the buttermilk somehow tenderize the meat and make it even more succulent.
So next time when you decide to make fried chicken, you know what to do. Am I RIGHT GUYS..
