Mix the paprika with the buttermilk
Add the chicken to the buttermilk, stir to coat and ideally leave to marinate overnight but at least for 1 hour.
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C or 180°C if fan assisted.
Mix the fried chicken seasoning with the flour in a bowl.
Drain the chicken and toss in the flour so evenly coated.
Heat the oil in a large, heavy bottomed frying pan.
Once the oil is hot carefully place the chicken in the pan. Cook on a gentle heat until the chicken is lightly browned.
Once the chicken pieces are nicely coloured, take them out of the pan, shaking off any excess oil, and place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment or grease proof paper.
Place the chicken in the pre-heated oven and cook for around 30 minutes until cooked all the way through. A temperature probe can be used to make sure the internal core temperature is 75°C or above.
Serve the chicken with some fries, salad and coleslaw for a proper taste of the American South.
