Juicy Oven Baked Fried Chicken

Every once in a while I get a craving for fried chicken.  Just want to bite into a crispy piece of mouth watering delicious good chicken. But I don't want all that fat from frying so I love to make oven baked fried chicken to cut down on the fat and calories. I leave the skin on my chicken cause I don't eat fried chicken with skin that often but if you want to cut down further on the calories use skinless chicken or just pull off the skin. For me if I am going to indulge I'm going all the way!
First I always soak my chicken in water and sea salt for thirty minutes to clean the chicken. Drain chicken and pat dry with paper towels. I also soak my chicken over night in buttermilk which makes it extra juicy. You can serve this chicken hot or cold, I just love it either way!

Chicken pieces, 2 breast, 4 legs, four thighs and 6 wings.
2 cups buttermilk
1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce or other hot sauce
1 1/2 cup four
1/2 cup corn meal
1teaspoon seal salt
1 teaspoon fresh black peppe…
