Deviled Fried Chicken

2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp. onion powder
5 tsp. salt
4 tsp. dry mustard
4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 1/2 tsp. black pepper
3 lb. fryer chicken, skinned
3 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
5 cups peanut oil

Remove backbone from fryer and cut chicken into 8 pieces. In a 1
gallon resealable plastic bag, mix buttermilk, Dijon mustard, 1
tablespoon of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of dry
mustard, 1 teaspoon of cayenne and 1 teaspoon of black pepper.
Add chicken pieces. Seal bag, eliminating air. Turn bag to coat
chicken evenly.

Refrigerate at least 1 day and up to 2 days, turning plastic bag

Whisk flour, baking powder, garlic powder, remaining 1 tablespoons
of onion powder, 4 teaspoons of salt, 3 teaspoons of dry mustard,
3 teaspoons of cayenne (I omit the cayenne from the flour mixture.
Too hot for me) and 1 1/2 teaspoons of black pepper in 13x9x2"
glass dish. With marinade still clinging to chicken pieces (do
not shake off excess), add chicken to flour mixture; turn to coat
thickly. Let chicken stand in flour mixture for 1 hour, turning
chicken occasionally to re-coat with flour mixture. Pour oil to
depth of 1 1/4" into deep 10-12" in diameter pot. Attach a deep
fry thermometer. Heat oil over medium-high heat to 350 degrees.

Add 4 pieces of chicken, skinned side down, to oil. Reduce heat
to medium-low and fry 5 minutes, adjusting heat to maintain oil
temperature between 280 and 300 degrees (oil should bubble constantly
around chicken). Using wooden spoons, turn chicken over. Fry 7
minutes. Turn chicken over again. Fry until deep golden brown
and cooked through, about 3 minutes longer. Using same spoons,
transfer chicken to a large rack set on baking sheet. (To prevent
the crust from breaking and to keep moisture sealed in, use wooden
spoons rather than tongs or a fork to turn over the chicken piecesas
they fry). Reheat oil to 350 degrees. Repeat frying with remaining
4 pieces of chicken.
