Directions

For Babish's Buttermilk Fried Chicken
1. Break down chicken into 8 pieces. Save wing and spine pieces for making chicken stock.
2. Into a large food-safe bucket, add 16 oz of buttermilk and 12 herbs and spices along with an extra tablespoon of kosher salt and chicken pieces.
3. Press chicken down into the buttermilk brine and give it a good mix until they are evenly coated and keep the bucket in the fridge for at least 6 hours and up to 24 hours. Take it out once or twice during its marinade time to give it good stir.
4. In a wide casserole dish, add 12 herbs and spices, 2 cups of all purpose flour and half cup of corn starch, and whisk together.
5. Add a few tablespoons of marinade to the dredge, and mix it up with your fingers or a fork until creating tiny little bits of breading that are going to stick to the chicken.
6. Bread all of the chicken at once and let those sit there for about 10 minutes.
7. Heat canola and peanut oils to 400°F, frying for 6-9 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Dark meat should reach 175°F and white meat should register 165°F. Place on a wire rack and keep in a low temperature oven until all of the chicken has finished frying.
8. Optional but you really should: Scoop up the brown, sloppy gold off the bottom of the pot and use it for gravy.
For Gravy
1. In a small saucepan, melt 6 tablespoons of butter until foaming and add ⅓ cup all purpose flour, and whisk to cook for an additional minute.
2. Slowly stream in 3 cups chicken stock, and whisk constantly to prevent clumping.
3. Add a good glug of soy sauce.
4. Simmer for 3-4 minutes until it gets nice and thick. Taste for seasoning.
