My friend Anabelle told me about this — that the buttermilk makes the chicken really soft and this is the way a lot of proper fried chicken is cooked in the American deep south. You will need to marinate the chicken for 12–24 hours (the longer the better). This dish has a very honest and simple flavour at the end so you might like to add some extras — adults might appreciate some chilli and extra herbs mixed into the paprika flour. You can also do this with skinless chicken
