Double dip - Dredge with buttermilk and your seasoning mixture and then do it again. Then let the pieces rest on a rack for 5-10 minutes before frying.

Do you coat with flour first? What's the recipe...

Also, don't over crowd the frying pan - batches. Make sure the oil is at the right temperature throughout the batches by using a deep fry thermometer. Use a spider or the like to skim excess in between batches. Agree with nutcakes re: chill the chicken before frying & after coating.

Chill the chicken on a rack over a tray before cooking.
