Source: my recipes



  • 4 1/2 pounds chicken pieces (breast, drumsticks, and thighs)
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg Vegetable oil
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup plus
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped


  • Place chicken pieces in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Whisk together buttermilk and egg until blended; pour over chicken.
  • Cover and chill 1 to 8 hours, turning chicken after 30 minutes. Pour vegetable oil to depth of 1 1/2 inches into a cast-iron Dutch oven; heat over medium heat to 340°.
  • Whisk together flour, salt, ground red pepper, garlic powder, and ground black pepper in a shallow dish.
  • Dredge chicken in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Fry chicken, in 2 batches, in hot oil 20 to 22 minutes or until done, turning occasionally. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels.
  • Place on a wire rack in a jelly-roll pan, and keep warm in a 200° oven.
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; whisk in honey until blended.
  • Stir in pecans; bring mixture to a boil, whisking often. Reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  • Drizzle over chicken, and serve immediately.
