For the Fried Chicken:
– 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
– 1 cup buttermilk
– 1 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1 teaspoon paprika
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
– Vegetable oil, for frying

For the Fries:
– 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into fries
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– Salt, to taste
– 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1/2 teaspoon paprika
– 1/4 teaspoon black pepper



For the Fried Chicken

1. In a bowl, combine the buttermilk and hot sauce. Place the chicken thighs in the buttermilk mixture, ensuring they are fully coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight for best results.
2. In a shallow dish, whisk together the flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven until it reaches 350°F (180°C).
4. Remove the chicken thighs from the buttermilk mixture, allowing any excess to drip off. Dredge the chicken in the seasoned flour, coating evenly on all sides.
5. Carefully place the chicken thighs in the hot oil, skin side down. Fry for 6-8 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. The internal temperature should reach 165°F (75°C). Transfer the fried chicken to a wire rack set over a baking sheet to drain excess oil.

For the Fries

1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, toss the potato fries with olive oil, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper until evenly coated.
3. Spread the fries in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they are not overcrowded.
4. Bake the fries for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until they are crispy and golden brown.
5. Serve the Crispy Fried Chicken with Perfectly Golden Fries hot, alongside your favorite dipping sauces such as ketchup, barbecue sauce, or ranch dressing.
