Tips to nail that perfectly crispy pan-fried chicken
- The key to get that moist, juicy chicken on the inside is the marination. You need to marinate the chicken in the buttermilk for at least 6 hours. Overnight marination is the best.
- While coating, the flour should be pressed to the chicken. This makes the chicken extra crispy.
- While frying, the chicken should be perfectly browned on all sides. Overbrowning can give a bitter taste to the coating. Less browned might lead to undercooked chicken.
