I use AP flour for my fried chicken. I've experimented with other types of flour, but always come back to the standard AP flour. I have found that brining the chicken makes it moist and tender. Lately, I've been making this recipe and really enjoy it. Here's a link in case you'd like to try it: https://food52.com/recipes...

AP flour for me as well. Marinate the chicken in buttermilk for no more than an hour before frying, mix salt/pepper into AP flour and that is it. BB
