  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1½ teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1½ teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 cups whole buttermilk
  • 24 chicken drummettes
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Warm Spicy Honey (recipe follows)
  1. In a large shallow dish, whisk together flour, salt, pepper, and onion powder. In a medium bowl, place buttermilk. Dredge chicken in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip in buttermilk, letting excess drip off. Dredge in flour mixture again, pressing to adhere. Place on a wire rack.
