  1. COMBINE PEPPER AND BUTTERMILK in a bowl or glass pie dish large enough to hold the chicken in one layer and set aside. Place the flour on a plate and set aside. Place a slice of ham under the skin of the chicken and place 2 sage leaves or some dried sage inside. Place the breasts in the buttermilk and place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Turn the breasts over and let sit another 20 minutes. Heat a 1-inch depth of oil in a heavy skillet to 375F. Oil is hot enough for frying when a droplet of water bubbles and dances across the surface. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator, remove from the marinade and wipe off excess buttermilk. Dust the breasts on both sides with flour and place in the hot oil. Cook about 6 minutes, turn and cook until a golden brown crust forms, about another 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the breasts and drain on an absorbent towel. Serve immediately. —– Archive January 2010 December 2009 July 2009 June 2009 April 2009 March 2009 December 2008 November 2008 October 2008 September 2008 August 2008 July 2008 June 2008
