This is absolutely some of the best fried chicken ever! We have been craving some fried chicken and when I told the kids I was going to start working on a recipe, they were lining up. I tried about six different varieties of how to make fried chicken and this is hands down the best Buttermilk Ranch Fried Chicken. I guarantee nobody will know this is gluten free.
I tried to use all purpose gluten free flour but the recipe just did not work very well. The coating was inconsistent and it does not hold up to the hot oil well.
I tried panko crumbs and they just fell right off the chicken.
I tried to use just rice flour and it tasted fabulous but looked awful. I had to cook it half in the oil and then bake it to cook it all the way, that left the coating soggy and it dried out the chicken.
I tried the 3-2-1 combo and it works. I wanted more to it though.
Justin reminded me of a place he went to that served Fried Chicken and they used Matzo, said it was some of the best chicken he ever had. So I set to work and I have to say, he was right.
