How to make fried chicken breast

Preparing and marinating meat before breading

Preparation of chicken

  • Preparing the chicken – Using a meat mallet or the bottom of the pan, tap the chicken to about 0.5 inch thick between two sheets of plastic wrap or wax paper until evenly thick. Cut in two along the direction. (photo1)
  • coating – Pour the buttermilk into a bowl. Add salt, pepper, hot sauce, and Creole seasoning. Mix well. (Photos 2-3)
  • Marinade – Place the chicken in a separate bowl and drizzle the buttermilk over the chicken. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 4-24 hours. (Photo 4)
  • bread crumbs – Whisk flour, cornstarch, baking powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, herbs, cayenne pepper, white pepper and salt in a large bowl. (Photo 5)
  • Dredge – Remove the marinated chicken from the buttermilk (excess water should be returned to the bowl). Then dredge the flour mixture and shake off the excess flour. (Photos 6-8)
  • double pickled – Dip chicken in remaining buttermilk twice (add fresh buttermilk if needed), add flour mixture and shake off excess flour. Let the chicken rest for 10-15 minutes and heat the oil for a better coating. (Photos 5-6)
breaded and fried


  • heat of Heat oil in a deep fryer or cast iron skillet to 375°F/190°C. Adding chicken will lower the temperature.
  • fry – Using tongs, slowly and carefully lower the chicken into the hot oil. Fry chicken until golden brown, turning over every 5 minutes (time depends on breast size). The chicken is done when the pink color is gone and the juices are clear or the thermometer reads 75°C. You can also pierce the chicken with a knife or fork to see if the juices run clear.
  • drain Drain chicken on paper towels and transfer to wire rack.
  • repeat with the remaining chicken.

recipe variations

  1. The combination of flour and cornstarch produces the best crunchiness, but you can also use 100% cornstarch or mix it with gluten-free flour for a gluten-free version.
  2. Fried chicken breast is excellent. It usually takes 15-20 minutes in an air fryer, depending on the size. Just turn over halfway through.

tips and tricks

  1. After coating the chicken with the flour and buttermilk mixture, let it rest before frying.
  2. A cast-iron skillet helps you create the perfect fried chicken because it retains its temperature and heats evenly.
  3. Only heat enough oil to cover 3/4 of the chicken, rather than immersing the chicken completely in the oil. You can get a smooth skin.
  4. Don’t overfill the pan with chicken (soggy chicken is bad) as this will lower the temperature of the oil and slow down the cooking time. Do it in small batches instead.
  5. Don’t leave fried chicken on paper towels for too long. Instead, use a wire rack over a baking sheet to drain the chicken.

How long does it take to fry fried chicken?

The grilling time will vary depending on the thickness of the meat and the heat level of the oil, but it should be around 5-6 minutes per side. Internal temperature after cooking should be 165°F/74°C with a meat thermometer.

How to fry chicken breast so that it does not dry out?

Marinate chicken breasts in buttermilk for at least 4 hours to soften. And to redistribute the gravy and prevent drying out, place the chicken on a wire rack before serving.

What is the correct temperature for oil?

Aim for about 350-375°F (176-190°C). If the oil isn’t hot enough, the chicken will soak it up. Too hot and it will burn on the outside and undercook on the inside. Don’t have a thermometer? No problem; just test the oil by dipping a wooden spoon into it. When it starts bubbling, it’s ready to fry.
