  • For the Chicken:
  • 4-6 pieces of chicken (drumsticks, thighs or a mixture)

  • 2 cups buttermilk

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tsp red capsicum

  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili (adjust to taste)

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp onion powder

  • For coating:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tsp red capsicum

  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp onion powder

  • For frying:
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Marinating the Chicken:
  • In a large bowl, whisk together buttermilk, salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  • Dredge the chicken pieces in the buttermilk mixture, making sure they are completely coated.
  • cover the bowl tightly using plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours, or if possible overnight. This helps to tenderize the chicken and infuse flavor.
  • Coating Preparation:
  • Combine flour, salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and onion powder in a shallow pot.
  • Take out the marinated chicken pieces from the buttermilk mixture and let the excess liquid drain out.
  • Dip chicken into flour mixture, pressing to coat chicken thoroughly.
  • Place the coated chicken on a baking sheet or wire rack and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes. This allows the coating to settle and stick to the chicken.
  • Frying the Chicken:
  • In a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven, heat enough vegetable oil to cover chicken pieces. Heat oil to 350°F (175°C).
  • Carefully place a few pieces of coated chicken in the hot oil, taking care not to overcrowd the pan. Fry in batches if necessary.
  • Roast the chicken for about 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. make sure to reach the internal temperature to 165°F (74°C).
  • Remove the fried chicken from the oil. use a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  • To serve:
  • Leave the fried chicken for a few minutes before serving so the juices can redistribute.
  • Serve New York-style fried chicken with your favorite side, such as coleslaw, biscuits, or mashed potatoes.
  • Enjoy your delicious homemade New York-style fried chicken!

  • Marinate overnight: For maximum flavor, soak chicken in a buttermilk and spice marinade overnight. This results in tender and tasty meat.
  • Coating Crunch: After coating the chicken with flour mixture, leave it like this for 15-20 minutes. This ensures a crispy coating that sticks perfectly while frying.
  • Oil temperature control: Use a thermometer to maintain the oil temperature at 350°F (175°C) while frying. This guarantees golden exterior and perfectly cooked interior without excess oil absorption.
