Break out the buttermilk and give your chicken a 24hr bath -- far more pleasant than the one taken by people who bought into Facebook's IPO.
Pour out 8 cups of flour into a large mixing bowl (for the homies).
Add a splash of color & flavor to the flour by hitting it with smoked paprika/ salt/ pepper. Do not say "BAM!" when doing this. Ok fine, say it.
Roll that chicken around all up in it.
Cut up 4lbs of mouthwatering bacon into small pieces, restrain self from eating them. Ok fine, don't.
Render the fat from the bacon, and add "a pinch" of butter and lard, if the pinch is from the hand of Shaquille O'Neal.
That fat's good and rendered. Throw away that bacon, or save it for bacon bits. Or just down it all right now.
Get the temp up to 375 and then drop the chicken in. After about 7-9 minutes, it'll look golden brown and delicious. Let it drain for a few, and then viola!
Serve your chicken to friends while they stroke your ego, right before they all have actual strokes. And to make sure you get it right, click here for a printable recipe card with all the details.
