Directions

In a medium bowl, mix the buttermilk and balsamic vinegar.

In another medium bowl, combine the cereal, flour, seasoned salt and a few grinds of black pepper.

Fill a large, deep frying pan a little less than half full with oil and heat over medium-high heat to 350 degrees F.

Dip the chicken pieces in the buttermilk mixture and then in cereal mixture. Fry the chicken, a few pieces at a time, until golden brown and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes per piece. Remove from the oil and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Bring the oil back to 350 degrees F before cooking the remaining pieces of chicken.
