  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Trim chicken of any excess fat. Wash and drain well. Cut into 1-inch pieces.
In a large bowl, combine buttermilk and hot sauce. Stir until blended. Add chicken, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Drain chicken.

In a bowl, combine flour, corn starch, baking powder, Cajun seasoning, and salt. Whisk until well-dispersed.

Add chicken pieces and with hands, toss until fully coated.
In a thick-bottomed pan over medium heat, heat about 2-inches deep of oil. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until golden, crisp and cooked through. With a slotted spoon, remove from pan and drain on a wire rack set. Do NOT overcrowd the pan, fry in batches as needed. Serve immediately with honey mustard sauce or dipping sauce of choice.
