Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 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

  1. In a large bowl, pour the buttermilk over the chicken breasts. Make sure the chicken is fully submerged. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  3. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and let any excess liquid drip off.

  7. Flip the chicken and cook for an additional 6-8 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  8. Remove the chicken from the skillet and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
