In a large bowl, combine the chicken and buttermilk; refrigerate at least 24 hours and up to 2 days. In a food processor, combine the honey and chiles; blend until smooth. Set the chipotle honey aside.
In a large Dutch oven, heat the oil to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika.
Working in batches, remove the chicken from the marinade and dredge in the seasoned flour; repeat. Add the chicken to the hot oil and fry until cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes per batch. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
