In a non-stick deep pot, frying pan or an electric fryer, add some vegetable oil about half way of your cooking pot…heat it on high.

Heat till the oil is really hot then reduce the heat to medium…we want to ensure the chicken cooks thoroughly and not just fries on the surface .

Get your chicken pieces from your buttermilk mix. Dry them a bit with kitchen paper.

Dunk them in your seasoned flour till well coated, shake off excess flour, and then dip them one at a time in the egg mix. Remove, and then dunk again in your seasoned flour mix.
