Curtis Stone - Southern Fried Chix


I was browsing Curtis Stone recipes and saw this fried chix , and I was drooling over it. How can I be always cooking my hubby & kids fav, so I decided to fried the Chix when I am serving the Fish & Chips. 

I am always dying for fried chix, my crazy crave each time. Simply love to eat the crispy skin, tender meat so I am always trying different recipes. This recipe seems easy to follow, easy to prepare. I am also interested to know how it will taste after soaking in buttermilk then coating it to fried. 

Verdict: The chix meat is especially soft and tender after soaking in the buttermilk, I presume. Outer skin, it is crispy after deep fried but will soften a bit after cooling down, but won't turn soggy. Not bad in my views. 


I am submitting this to Cook Like A Star, featured chef is Curtis Stone organized by Zoe from Bake For Happy Kids together with co-hosts, Baby Sumo from Eat Your Heart Out and Grace from Life Can Be Simple.

Hi Priscilla,

I have tried using buttermilk to marinate chicken before. We like it but my husband hate it :p I guess different people have different option in food :D

Hi Priscilla, thanks for joining us in this bloghop. I love fried chicken too, and I wish I could cook this at home but I got phobia of deep frying at home. I can just drool at your photos ;)
