Chef Bobby’s Game Day Southern Fried Thighs

Ingredients 10 boneless, skinless chicken thighs 2 cups low-fat buttermilk 1 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon Cajun spice Paul Prudommes 2 tablespoons kosher salt 4 teaspoons black pepper 4 cups all-purpose flour (for dredging) Canola or peanut oil (for frying) Making the Thighs happy! In a mixing bowl combine the chicken, buttermilk, paprika, Cajun spice , and half the salt and black pepper. Mix well and refrigerate for 2 hours to marinate. Add the flour, and remaining salt and black pepper, to a baking dish. Using tongs, remove the chicken, 2 to 3 pieces at a time and coat well in the seasoned flour. Be sure to press the flour into the meat cover completely. Shake off excess and reserve on a baking sheet. When all the pieces of chicken are dredged in the flour, add about an inch of oil to a heavy frying pan. Over a medium-high flame, heat the oil to 375 F. Test the oil, then add the chicken and cook for 7 to 8 minutes per side, until the outside is browned and the meat is cooked through. Serve immediately, or hold in a warm oven if doing in batches.
