Fried Chicken ... to soak or not?

ipsedixit | | May 21, 2008 04:10 PM

I've been tasked to make fried chicken for a Memorial Day gathering.

I'd like to get some guidance and advice about whether the chicken should first be bathed or soaked in buttermilk (or yogurt) prior to dredging and frying?

I know some people don't bother with the buttermilk part, and I also know that some people are adamant that that the chicken should be soaked in buttermilk for a couple of hours, if not overnight.

Any thoughts?
