  • 2-4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buttermilk*
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt to taste
  • 1/2 ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 qt vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 tablespoons truffle honey

Oven Roasted Asparagus:

  • 1 bunch thin asparagus spears trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap, and using a flat mallet, pound lightly the chicken on both sides.
  2. Add flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper to a large plastic bag and mix to combine.
  3. Add buttermilk to a shallow plate.
  4. Dip chicken breasts well in buttermilk, put them in the bag with the flour, seal the bag, and shake to coat well.
  5. Place coated chicken on a plate or tray and cover with a clean dish towel or waxed paper. Let chicken sit until the flour is a paste-like consistency.
  6. Fill a large skillet about 1/3 to 1/2 full with vegetable oil and heat the oil until very hot.
  7. Add the chicken breast to the skillet, if you are cooking a large batch, make sure the chicken pieces don't overlap.
  8. Brown chicken on both sides, that should take only a few minutes, reduce heat, and cover the skillet.
  9. Cook for about 10 minutes on low heat, so the chicken breast will be cooked through, but not crispy (it will take longer if you are cooking other chicken parts).
  10. Remove the lid, raise the heat, and continue to fry the chicken until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate or cookie sheet or tray. If not serving immediately, place the chicken in a warm oven to keep it warm.
  11. Repeat with remaining chicken if you have more left.
  12. Drizzle chicken with Honey Truffle and serve with mashed potatoes and asparagus.

Oven Roasted Asparagus:

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place the asparagus into a mixing bowl, and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat, then sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Arrange the asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving.
