Ingredients

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 cups crushed corn flake cereal

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Generous pinch seasoned salt, such as Lawry's

Freshly ground black pepper

1 whole chicken, cut into 10 parts (about 4 pounds)

1 quart sunflower oil

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix the buttermilk and balsamic vinegar. 
  2. In another medium bowl, combine the cereal, flour, seasoned salt and a few grinds of black pepper. 
  3. Fill a large, deep frying pan a little less than half full with oil and heat over medium-high heat to 350 degrees F. 
  4. 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. 
  5. Bring the oil back to 350 degrees F before cooking the remaining pieces of chicken.
