  1. In a shallow dish, mix together flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
  2. In another shallow dish, whisk together the egg and buttermilk.
  3. Dip the chicken leg into the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Then dip it into the egg mixture, coating it evenly.
  4. Dip the chicken leg back into the flour mixture, pressing the flour onto the chicken to ensure it's fully coated.
  5. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the chicken leg into the skillet. Cook for 10-12 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the skillet and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  8. Serve hot with your favorite sides, such as mashed potatoes or coleslaw. Enjoy!
