Tips & tricks

  • The buttermilk helps to tenderize the chicken so my advice is to do this part in the morning and have delicious tender chicken for dinner in minutes!
  • You can make the slaw ingredients in advance, just don’t toss it together with the pineapple or lime/vinegar until serving so they stay fresh and crisp
  • When cooking the fried chicken, don’t crowd the pan as the temperature will drop too much and your batter won’t get crisp enough. I usually do 3 pieces at a time and leave the 3 cooked to rest on a wire rack before serving
  • You can keep the thighs whole and serve it as a fried chicken sandwich too
