Instructions:

  • 1- In a large bowl, combine buttermilk and hot sauce. Add the chicken pieces and coat them thoroughly. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
    2- Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). In a shallow dish, mix flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper.
    3- Remove the chicken from the buttermilk marinade. Dip each piece in the flour mixture, ensuring an even coating. Place on a wire rack over a baking sheet.
    4️- Lightly spray or brush the chicken with cooking spray or oil. Bake for 40-45 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

Pro Tips:

For an extra kick, increase the amount of hot sauce in the buttermilk marinade.
Make a buttermilk substitute by adding 1 tbsp lemon juice or white vinegar to 1 cup of milk. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
Customize the seasoning to your liking. Add more paprika, garlic powder, or spices for a personal touch.

🍽️ Serve and Enjoy:

Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. Pair it with your favorite dipping sauces like barbecue, honey mustard, or ranch.

Complete the meal with sides such as mashed potatoes, coleslaw, or a fresh salad. Pure bliss on your plate! 😋👌
