2 pounds chicken pieces (legs, thighs, breasts)

1 cup buttermilk

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon paprika

In a large bowl, combine the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.

Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and let the excess drain off. Dredge each piece in the flour mixture to ensure it is well covered.

Place the chicken pieces in the basket, taking care not to overcrowd. Coat the chicken lightly with cooking spray.
