- Mix honey and buttermilk together and pour into a shallow bowl. Place chicken pieces in honey/buttermilk mixture and let sit for at least 4 hours.
- Once the chicken has set, mix eggs and 2 cups of the buttermilk/ honey mixture in another bowl. Combine and flour, baking soda and your favorite chicken spices in a third bowl. Dredge chicken in flour mixture, cover in egg/buttermilk mixture and redredge.
- Fry in skillet with oil temperature at 375° for approximately 20 minutes. Turn chicken every 5 minutes. Once done, place on paper towels to drain.
- To make gravy, drain all but 2 or 3 tablespoons of oil from skillet. Off the heat, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour and mix with oil. Place on medium high heat and let flour brown some. Stir in 1/2 cup milk and bring to boil. If gravy is to thick add more milk. Salt to taste.
Biscuits make a great side dish with fried chicken. For a crispier breading, add extra baking soda.
