For the chicken:

  • 8 Small bunch cilantro, basil or mint, cleaned and trimmed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 quarts peanut or vegetable oil

For the buttermilk mixture:

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill, minced
  • 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper

For the coating:

  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 3-4 tablespoons Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing, Dip & Sauce Mix

For the dipping sauce:

  • ¼ cup reserved buttermilk mixture
  • ½ cup prepared Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® dressing

For the chicken:

  1. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.

For the buttermilk mixture:

  1. Whisk all ingredients together in bowl. Set aside 1/4 cup buttermilk mixture for ranch sauce.

For the coating:

  1. Whisk all ingredients together in large bowl.
  2. Set wire rack in rimmed baking sheet. Set second wire rack in second rimmed baking sheet and line half of rack with triple layer of paper towels.
  3. Working with one piece at a time, dip chicken in remaining buttermilk mixture to coat, letting excess drip back into bowl; then dredge in coating, pressing to adhere. Transfer chicken to first wire rack (without paper towels). (At this point, coated chicken may be refrigerated, uncovered, for up to 2 hours.)
  4. Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until it reaches 350˚F. Add half of chicken to hot oil and fry until golden brown and registers 175˚F, 7 to 9 minutes. Adjust burner, if necessary, to maintain oil temperature between 325˚F and 350˚F.
  5. Transfer chicken to paper towel-lined side of second wire rack to drain on each side for 30 seconds, then move to unlined side of rack; this prevents coating form getting steamed and soggy. Return oil to 350˚F and repeat with remaining chicken.

For the ranch dipping sauce:

  1. Whisk 1/2 cup prepared Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® dressing into the 1/4 cup reserved buttermilk mixture.
  2. Transfer chicken to platter and serve with the ranch sauce.
