    Dipped it into the brine and flour twice and it turned out crispy, yummy. My family loves it. This recipe is Definitely a keeper with slight modifications ❤️

    Tasteless.. I can give credit for crunchiness 4/5 but there was no flavor it’s dull

    This was. So good. I did use another commenter's suggestion and brined with milk and lemon juice instead of buttermilk. Also substituted the salt with Mrs. Dash. Still cooked up exactly as described. Crispy and juicy. Whole family loved it. Will definitely make again.

    Not crispy. I would try it again but this time I would dip the chicken twice in the brine and flour before frying.

    This was possibly the best fried chicken I’ve ever had! I marinated the raw chicken in the buttermilk mixture overnight and it added so much depth to the flavor.

    Delicious! I didn’t have buttermilk so I made my own with 2 cups of milk and 4 tablespoons of lemon juice, but everything else I followed!

    This recipe is amazing. I just bought an air fryer and was testing it out. The flavors were amazing and the crispiness was was definitely there. I liked the fact the chicken soaked in the buttermilk before frying. I think that is one of the most important thing to do to the chicken before breading. I would definitely make it again. Thank you.

    It was tender and tasty I browned it in the pressure cooker, then pressure-cooked it 15 min . Flavor was similar to KFC, but not crispy due to method of cooking. I Iserved it on a double paper towel I used coconut out to cook, and it wasn’t greasy, either to eat or the clean-up . Everyone liked it
