Fried Chicken

  • In a shallow bowl, whisk flour, cornstarch, paprika, garlic powder, light brown sugar, salt, pepper.
  • Place the buttermilk in a bowl.
  • In a large cast iron skillet pour ½ inch of oil. Place deep-fry thermometer in oil, over medium heat, heat the oil until the thermometer reaches 350 degrees.
