How to make homemade fried chicken?

Preparing fried chicken is no big deal. However, to prepare the perfect homemade fried chicken, you need to learn some of the chefs’ best-kept secrets. The recipe below will help you do just that.

Ingredients for preparing this homemade fried chicken récipe

The ingredients we will need are as follows: 

  • Two to three cups of buttermilk. 
  • Chicken with skin and cut into pieces 
  • 1 cup of flour 
  • Cup of bread crumbs
  • 1 egg 
  • 2/3 cup milk

For marinating

The first step to get the perfect homemade fried chicken is to choose the right marinade. The base of this marinade will be buttermilk, to which you should add your favorite spices. Among them you can include:

  • Salt with onion 
  • Salt with garlic 
  • Paprika 
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Basil 
  • Thyme 
  • Black pepper 
  • White pepper 
  • Oregano

When your marinade is ready, it is time to prepare the chicken. For marinating, you can use a bowl of considerable depth, where the chicken is completely covered and sealed, or alternatively, a zip-lock bag.

This second option is ideal for marinating in the refrigerator so that each piece of chicken is covered by the mixture.

In order for the flavors of the mixture to adhere to the meat, we recommend that you marinate the chicken for at least two hours, although the ideal is to marinate overnight. The longer you let it sit, the more flavorful it will be.

For breading

Now, the key to a good homemade fried chicken is the batter. The breading involves more than simply flouring each piece of chicken that we are going to cook.

For breading we must prepare three different bowls. In the first one, we must place the flour, which we will have to season with salt and pepper to taste; in the second one, we are going to mix the egg and milk and in the third one, we will place the breadcrumbs.

For the homemade fried chicken recipe to be flawless, what we must do is the following:

  • Remove the chicken from the marinade and dip each piece of chicken in the milk and egg mixture. 
  • After that, you should coat each piece in a thin layer of flour. 
  • When this step is complete, it is time to repeat step one, that is, dredge each piece of chicken in our milk and egg mixture.
  • As a last step, you must take each piece to the bowl that you have previously prepared with bread crumbs.

This will allow a firm, crunchy and, above all, delicious layer to be generated at the time of frying. For this same reason we also recommend adding some spices to the flour, such as salt, pepper and paprika.


If you do not want to add egg to your preparation, you can also choose to flour your chicken pieces, after removing them from the marinade mixture, so that the same humidity attracts the flour and with it we get a first layer. 

After that you will have to pass the floured chicken again through the marinade mixture and take it to the breadcrumbs bowl to get the second layer.

This option is equally tasty and will give you that crispy, juicy fried chicken that everyone loves.

On the other hand, there are those who prefer to mix equal parts flour and breadcrumbs in the same bowl. You should try it, the crunchiness you get from this version is also delicious.

For deep frying

How to cook fried chicken? In order to achieve the ideal cooking, the fried chicken recipe indicates that a deep frying should be done, so in a pot or pan with enough space you should pour the oil. When this is done, you should place it on the stove and wait for it to reach between 300° F and 325° F.

When this happens, it will be time to place the chicken in the oil and let the inside of each piece reach its peak of doneness, which usually occurs between 15 and 20 minutes, at an internal temperature (without touching the bone) of 175° F.

To serve

To accompany this fried chicken recipe, you can use potato salad, mashed potatoes, mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables or any side dish you can think of.

Remember that sauces are also an excellent option to enhance the flavor of your homemade fried chicken, so including them in your preparation will add more flavor and variety.
