alton brown's fried chicken

On September 24th, Seppo made some fried chicken.

He soaked the chicken overnight in buttermilk and something else. Hopefully, he will edit this entry with the proper details.

An unfathomable amount of Crisco (with 0 trans fat but lots of other fat) was melted and heated to between 350 and 375 degrees.

The chicken was dusted with a seasoning mix consisting mainly of salt, paprika, and some other stuff that, again, hopefully Seppo will comment about. It was then dredged in flour and left on the rack to crust up just a little bit before going into the oil.

That picture is scary, but a large part of life is scary, my friend.

Seppo cooked everything in about 5 batches, I think. It was extremely moist and flavorful. Fried chicken that has soaked in buttermilk definitely wins over fried chicken that hasn't.
