Favorite Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Fresh Herbs & Garlic

Notes: 

"Homemade fried chicken has never been so delicious! This is my all-time favorite Buttermilk Fried Chicken – brined chicken is quickly soaked in buttermilk & dusted with flour before frying in garlic- & fresh herb-infused oil. The resulting fried chicken is absolutely juicy & tender, intensely flavorful, & ridiculously crispy. Absolutely perfect, in absolutely every way!"
