Better than fast food takeout, brining is the key to this tender juicy chicken, any leftovers can be stuffed in between a crusty bun topped with mayo, mustard and a leaf of lettuce, this also works well using bone-on chicken pieces but frying time will need to be adjusted --- plan ahead the chicken needs to soak in the buttermilk for 8-24 hours (24 hours is even better). Try to purchase large thick chicken breasts for this to make the slicing in half easier, use a sharp knife for slicing. I usually serve this with my Creamy Mushroom Sauce/Gravy --- if you cannot find Old Bay seasoning, use 2 teaspoons of seasoning salt in place of regular salt --- you will *love* this fried chicken! :)
