Buttermilk Fried Chicken Recipe

There are moments when only KFC will do. These are moments possibly coloured by alcohol and the lateness of the hour, but there’s something about crispy fried chicken that soothes the soul even as it is taking the roof off your mouth. This Buttermilk Fried Chicken Recipe takes the principle of chicken in a box and makes it into something infinitely more sophisticated, delicious and finger-lickin’ than you could ever have imagined.

250ml buttermilk

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
