With the weather warming up this early April and winter relinquishing its grip this month, I am beginning to yearn for the upcoming barbecue and grilling season. Last summer I came up with Smokin' Summer Spice Dry Rub which I have used in many ways since on pulled pork, beef brisket...even as a seasoning for grilled burgers. I really do think it has a great combination of flavors in the herbs and spices that are used in it. 

When I was making dinner last week, I set out to use my original recipe for The Best Oven Fried Chicken which our whole family loves. When I pulled out the spice drawer to get the spices needed, I noticed that there were a few tablespoons of that Smokin' Summer Spice Dry Rub left from the last batch that I made. I decided to give it a shot as the seasoning for the fried chicken and it turned out great!

We served it with some delicious pasta salad for a quick meal but I recommend if you have the time that you try my easy Unfried Crispy Wedge Fries which go great with fried chicken as a lower fat alternative too.

Cut one whole chicken into parts or use 3 lbs chicken parts of your choice. Add the chicken parts to a large Ziploc bag and then mix together and pour in:
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce (optional
  • 1 1/2  tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
Push as much air as you can out of the bag, close it and place in a bowl in the fridge for 6 - 8 hours or overnight.

Make a dredge for the chicken by mixing together:
Drain the chicken pieces from the buttermilk and then dredge thoroughly in the flour and spice mixture to coat the pieces evenly.

Coat the bottom of a cookie sheet or large baking pan with approximately

  • 3 tbsp canola oil  (light olive oil or peanut oil are also good)
Place the coated chicken pieces in the pan and lightly spray the tops with olive oil from a spray bottle. Bake at 375 degrees for 50-60 minutes depending on the size of the chicken pieces. Drumsticks and wings will take only about 45 minutes. I use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature of the largest pieces reaches 165 - 170 degrees F.
