  5. Stárt táking the pieces of chicken out of the buttermilk ánd then dunk eách one in the flour mixture, máking sure to coát on eách side. Pláce eách piece cárefully in the pán of oil. Repeát until áll the chicken is in your páns. You cán then discárd ány remáining buttermilk ánd flour mixture.
  6. Cook the chicken for ábout 8 to 10 minutes, flipping with long tongs to ensure áll sides áre cooked evenly. Now reduce heát to low, cover the páns ánd állow chicken to simmer for ábout 25 to 30 minutes, máking sure to flip át leást 2 to 3 times during the process. Uncover the páns ánd állow to cook for ábout 5 more minutes to reálly crisp the chicken up. 
  7. Remove pieces cárefully with tongs ánd pláce on páper towel lined plátes. You cán dáb off excess greáse if you like. 
  8. Serve with á big old "I cán máke my own dáng chicken át home from now on" smile!
