the soak
1 1/4 cups whole buttermilk
2 eggs
1/3 cup minced vidalia onion
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp creole seasoning
1 {3 to 3 1/2 lb} whole chicken, cut up
{have the butcher cut up a whole chicken for you}

combine the buttermilk & next 4 ingredients in a large bowl
immerse the chicken pieces & refrigerate 1 hour

the dredge
2 1/2 cups ap flour
1 Tbsp creole seasoning
1 tsp each chili powder, paprika, black pepper

whisk together all ingredients for the dredging mixture in a medium bowl

the hot oil
2 {48-oz} bottles veg oil

heat the oil to 325 degrees in a Dutch oven
{use a candy thermometer check the oil temp}

the frying
once the oil temperature begins to get close to 325 degrees, set up your dredging post
remove the chicken from the buttermilk mixture & hold onto it

dredge the chicken pieces in the flour mixture
toss back into the buttermilk mixture
then coat again in the flour mixture
{yes, we’re double dipping… crispy, yummy, good}

fry the chicken pieces in batches & fry like pieces & sizes together

wings & drumsticks
10 to 12 minutes or until a {digital probe} thermometer registers 180 degrees

breasts & thighs
15 to 20 minutes or until a {digital probe} thermometer registers 180 degrees

the oil temperature will drop once you add the chicken pieces
turn often using long handled tongs
be sure the temperature has a chance to return to 325 degrees between batches

remove the chicken pieces from the grease
let stand on a wire rack over a paper towel lined half-sheet pan
{sprinkle w/ additional creole seasoning if you want to}
keep the chicken warm in a 200 degree oven up to 45 minutes before serving
