PREPARATION
1.
Soak the chicken strips in the buttermilk along with the salt and freshly ground pepper for 30 minutes to 1 hour in a cool spot in the kitchen. You want the chicken to come up to room temperature so that when you fry it, it doesn’t drop the temperature of the oil.
2.
Near the end of the hour of soaking, make the sweet and sour sauce (located in the dependent recipes).
3.
In a shallow container, whisk together the flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. If desired, whisk in the two extra tablespoons of buttermilk to form large clumps – these are added extra crispy bits.
4.
Take a strip of chicken out of the buttermilk, shake gently, then coat in flour, pressing to ensure all sides are covered. Place on a tray and continue to coat all of the chicken.
5.
Heat up at least 2 inches of oil in a deep cast iron or heavy bottomed pot over medium heat until 375°.
6.
Carefully add the coated chicken to the hot oil and deep fry in batches, being careful not to crowd the pan.
7.
Flip occasionally as needed, until crunchy, brown and cooked through, 5-8 minutes. Let cool slightly on a wire rack. Drizzle or toss with the sweet and sour sauce.
