      Copycat — Barefoot Contessa’s Classic Oven-Fried Chicken

      2 chickens, each cut in eight serving pieces
      1 qt buttermilk
      2 cups all-purpose flour
      1 tbs salt
      1 tbs black pepper

      Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl and pour the buttermilk over them. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
      When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 350°.

      Combine the flour, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Take the chicken out of the buttermilk and coat each piece thoroughly with the flour mixture.

      Pour vegetable oil into a large heavy-bottomed stockpot to a depth of 1 inch and heat to 360° on a thermometer.

      Working in batches, carefully place several pieces of chicken in the oil and fry for about 3 min on each side until the coating is a light golden brown being sure not to crowd the pieces.

      Remove the chicken from the oil and place each piece on a metal baking rack set on a sheet pan. Allow the oil to return to 360° before frying the next batch.

      When all the chicken is fried, bake for 30 to 40 min at 350° or until the chicken is no longer pink inside. Serve hot.  Serves 6
