Recipe type: Dinner, Main Meals
Ingredients
  • 1 broiler fryer chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • Or 10-12 chicken tenders
  • 3 cups
  • Mama’s Almond or Coconut Blend Flour
  • 2 tsp. GF seasoning salt
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1½ tsp. paprika
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¾ tsp. baking soda
  • 3-4 cups oil, peanut, canola, or safflower
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, seasoning salt, salt, black pepper, sugar, and paprika. Mix well.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, eggs, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk together until batter is smooth.
  3. Dip chicken into buttermilk mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Roll in flour mixture. Dip again into buttermilk mixture and roll in flour mixture. Place on plate until oil is hot. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.
  4. In a large heavy bottom skillet or Dutch oven that has a lid, add oil. For chicken tenders it should be at least ½ inch depth, and for broiler chicken ½ inch to ¾ inch depth. Heat oil until it reaches 365 degrees. Fry chicken skin side or flesh side down. Cover chicken with lid and reduce heat to medium.
  5. Fry for 7-9 minutes or until bottom side is golden brown. Flip chicken over and fry for additional 7-9 minutes or until bottom side is golden brown. You may need to rearrange chicken if needed. Internal temp should be 165-170 degrees. Remove chicken and serve, or place in 175 degree oven until all your frying is done.
Notes
GFM TIP:
When frying GF chicken, flip chicken carefully. Don’t move the chicken around too much as the coating will come off. Be patient and let the chicken cook on each side until it is thoroughly cooked. Gently move to serving plate.

    I didn’t know there was a GF Season Salt. What is the name brand? I looked through your products and I didn’t find GF Season Salt. So I’m hoping I can find one at one of our local stores. GF Season Salt suggestions would be great!! Thanks!!!!! 🙂

    Can we do without sugar and substitute the buttermilk for another milk, I.e., almond, coconut.?

    • January 18, 2015    

      Yes you can leave the sugar out, and you can use any milk, add 1 2 tsp. of vinegar of your choice to the milk and let it rest on counter for about 15 minutes.

    It sounds so good, but how could I change it to be baked and not deep fried?

    • January 15, 2015    

      I have other fried chickens that can be baked, this one needs to be fried. You can also fry it in a frying pan in a bit of coconut oil or olive oil.
