The Dooky Chase Fried Chicken is a classic Southern dish that is known for its crispy and flavorful coating. This recipe will guide you through the steps to recreate this delicious fried chicken at home. The chicken is marinated in a flavorful buttermilk mixture and then coated in a seasoned flour mixture before being fried to perfection.

Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 chicken legs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. In a large bowl, pour the buttermilk over the chicken legs. Make sure the chicken is fully submerged in the buttermilk. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to ensure the spices are evenly distributed.
  3. Remove the chicken legs from the buttermilk, allowing any excess buttermilk to drip off. Dip each chicken leg into the seasoned flour mixture, making sure to coat it thoroughly.
  4. In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C). Carefully place the coated chicken legs into the hot oil, being cautious not to overcrowd the pan.
  5. Fry the chicken legs for about 10 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F (74°C).
  6. Once cooked, remove the chicken legs from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  7. Serve the Dooky Chase Fried Chicken hot and enjoy!
