Peach Buttermilk Chicken

Grandma’s Fried Chicken (a pinch of this recipe)

Chicken thighs

Sea salt

Garlic powder

Onion powder


Peach nectar



Black pepper

Canola oil (or vegetable oil)


Marinate the chicken thighs in a mixture of buttermilk and peach nectar for at least two hours (overnight is best).

In a deep fryer or large pan, heat the oil.

Mix together the flour, cornstarch, sea salt, garlic and onion powder and black pepper. Dredge the chicken in the breading mixture and cook until it’s golden brown with a crispy exterior (12-15 minutes).
