Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl and pour
over them. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Preheat
the oven to 350F.
Combine the flour, salt, and pepper in a large
bowl. Take the
chicken out of the buttermilk and coat each piece thoroughly with the
flour mixture. Pour the oil into a large heavy-bottomed stockpot to a
depth of 1-inch and heat to 360F on a thermometer.
Working in batches, carefully place several pieces
of chicken in the
oil and fry for about 3 minutes on each side until the coating is a
light golden brown (it will continue to brown in the oven). Don't
crowd the pieces. Remove the chicken from the oil and place each
piece on a metal baking rack set on a sheet pan. Allow the oil to
return to 360F before frying the next batch. When all the chicken is
fried, bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the chicken is no longer pink
inside. Serve hot.
