Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Fried chicken is one of my families favorite meals, in fact, they drive me crazy about making it! It’s a crowd pleaser, to say the least. This recipe is my mothers and I have found by making it throughout the years that it is a VERY messy process but I can guarantee it’s so worth the mess!
