Seasoning: In a large mixing bowl, combine the dried basil, dried parsley, adobo, sofrito, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, turmeric powder, and one pack of sazon. Don't forget to add the vinegar, lemon juice, and olive oil. Mix well until all the ingredients are incorporated and form a flavorful marinade.

Buttermilk Bath: In a separate bowl, pour a cup of milk and add a teaspoon of vinegar. Allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes to create a homemade buttermilk substitute. Once it's ready, pour the buttermilk over the seasoned chicken in the mixing bowl. Ensure each piece is coated evenly, as the buttermilk will tenderize the meat and enhance its flavor.

Flour Coating: In another bowl, mix the flour coating with the remaining sazon pack. Dip each buttermilk-soaked chicken piece into the seasoned flour until fully coated. Shake off any excess flour to achieve a light and crispy crust.

Frying: Heat a frying pan with oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Carefully place the coated chicken pieces into the hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Fry the chicken in batches if necessary, maintaining the oil temperature for optimal crispiness. Cook each piece until golden brown and cooked through, typically 6-8 minutes per side depending on thickness.

Serve and Enjoy: Once the chicken is golden and crispy, transfer it to a wire rack or paper towels to drain any excess oil. Serve your delicious buttermilk fried chicken hot and fresh, accompanied by your favorite sides such as mashed potatoes, coleslaw, or cornbread. Get ready to indulge in a delightful meal that's packed with flavor and satisfaction!
