I haven't made fried chicken before, so rather than weigh in with pure opinion, I'm going to point you to this article with the opinions of experts! https://food52.com/blog...

With my experience with buttermilk in general, cultured milk tends to have more body than homemade buttermilk which would lend itself to fried chicken because it would stick better. If you're just marinating it, you could probably get away with either....but I use buttermilk to create a coat for the flour to stick to.
