Instructions: How to Cook Hennessy Fried Chicken

  1. In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk and Hennessy cognac. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl, making sure they are fully coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  3. In another bowl, beat the eggs. Remove the chicken pieces from the buttermilk mixture and dip them into the beaten eggs, then dredge them in the seasoned flour mixture, making sure they are well coated.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or deep fryer to 350°F (175°C). Fry the chicken pieces in batches, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.
  5. Transfer the fried chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Serve hot and enjoy the flavorful and crispy Hennessy Fried Chicken!
