I got this recipe off a Bobby Flay ‘Throwdown’ Food Network TV show , so as much as I’d like to claim this as one of mine…nope. Also, Monica took the photos as I made this recipe, they are not from the Food Network site.

This recipe is Not Suitable during early stages of my Candida Cleanse with a number of ingredients*, however it can be suitable later during the Maintenance Stage with a few modifications like Eggs instead of Buttermilk, Rice Flour instead of All Purpose Flour, only a few drops of  Tobasco, omit the Butter and use only Vegetable Oil.

4 cups all-purpose flour*
4 tablespoons salt (sea salt or kosher)
1 tablespoon finely ground black pepper
3 cups corn oil
1/2 cup unsalted butter*

Combine the buttermilk, garlic, and hot sauce and stir well. Submerge the chicken pieces in the buttermilk. Let soak for at least 2 hours in the
refrigerator, but preferably overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Sift together the flour, salt, and pepper. Heat the oil and butter over medium heat in a large skillet until the foaming of the butter begins to subside.

Pull the pieces of chicken out of the buttermilk 1 at a time. Let the excess buttermilk drip off, and then coat the chicken in the seasoned flour. Coat well and shake off any excess flour.

Place the chicken skin side down into the hot oil. Cook until nicely browned, 10 to 12 minutes per side.

Place the chicken on a sheet tray and bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes. You should see the juices of a thigh or leg run clear when you pierce the chicken with a fork.
