Double Dipped Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Jacobsen Co. Hot Honey Sauce is a classic. Have fun with this recipe!
- 1 - 2 lbs boneless chicken thighs
- 1 qt buttermilk
- 1 package AP flour
- High heat frying oil
- Jacobsen Pure Sea Salt or Infused Sea Salt
- Jacobsen Co. Hot Honey Sauce
- Baking rack
- Plastic gloves
Combine chicken, buttermilk, a few tablespoons of Sriracha, and a bit of chopped dill in a Le Creuset casserole dish and let marinate for 12-24 hours. Remove chicken from the refrigerator and let sit out on the counter for at least an hour before cooking. Preheat oven to 250°F. Add fryer oil to a large Le Creuset dutch oven so that the oil is several inches deep, but DOES NOT fill the dutch oven more than half way. Begin to heat the oil over medium high heat.
Add flour to another Le Creuset casserole dish and season the flour with your favorite Jacobsen infused sea salt. When the oil is hot, test by throwing in some flour to see if it will sizzle. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with paper towels and then placing a baking rack on top - this is where the cooked chicken with go. Keep this baking sheet and rack setup in the oven. Utilize the double dip technique to fry the chicken: Dip the chicken in the flour, coat evenly, pat off excess, place back in the buttermilk marinade, then dip back into the flour, pat off the excess, then gently place the chicken in the oil (laying the chicken away from you and not just plopping it in, as that may burn you) Only add 4-5 piece of chicken to the pot at a time so that the oil does not drop in temperature too much.
Cook the chicken, stirring and flipping the pieces during the cooking process, until they are golden brown. Remove from the oil, onto paper towel lined baking sheet, immediately season with Jacobsen Salt of your choice - Pure Flake Sea Salt or infused sea salt - then transfer to baking sheet and baking rack in the oven. Repeat with the next batch of chicken until done.
To serve, drizzle copious amounts of Jacobsen Co. Hot Honey Sauce on the chicken and eat with abandon.
