Gluten Free Fried Chicken Recipe

Prep time


Cook time





  • 3-4 pounds cut up chicken pieces
  • 1 quart Buttermilk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp Tabasco or other hot sauce
  • 1 cup superfine white or brown rice flour
  • 1/3 cup potato or tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp kosher or sea salt plus more for seasoning the chicken
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper plus more for seasoning the chicken
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • Vegetable Oil


  1. Place the chicken pieces in a baking dish and pour on the buttermilk. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and pat dry with paper towels. Season liberally with salt and pepper.
  2. Whisk the eggs together in a bowl with the Tabasco.
  3. In another bowl whisk together the flour, starch, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon black pepper, garlic powder and paprika.
  4. Dip the chicken pieces into the egg mixture then shake off the excess egg and coat well with the flour mixture. Push the flour into the chicken to coat well. Place on a plate and once all the chicken is coated let sit for 5 minutes. Coat the chicken in the flour mixture again.
  5. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and place a wire cooling rack on top. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  6. Fill a large, deep frying pan or Dutch oven halfway with oil. Insert a frying or candy thermometer. Heat oil to 380 degrees. Once the oil is to temperature, carefully lower the chicken into the hot oil, do not crowd the pan. Let cook for 4 minutes and flip over. Cook for 4 more minutes. You may have to adjust the temperature to keep the oil at 380 degrees. Remove the cooked chicken and place on the cooling rack, sprinkle with a little salt. Place in oven to keep warm while finishing up the rest of the chicken. Let the oil come back up to temperature and repeat with remaining chicken.
