1. "Better Than Popeyes" Fried Chicken
What is it about "southern" fried chicken that is so amazing? In addition to the spicy flavor, it seems that southern fried chicken always has an incredibly crispy outside and super-tender inside -- how is it done?
The secret is in a buttermilk marinade. The lactic acid in buttermilk is a great meat tenderizer, and its tangy flavor deliciously complements the coating on the chicken. Watch the video to see exactly how to put buttermilk to work for you in creating fried chicken that's "better than Popeyes!"
