Place the chicken into a large ziplock bag. Add buttermilk and refrigerate for 1 hour. In another ziplock bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Toss the chicken, one at a time, in the flour and place on wax paper for 15 minutes. Heat about 1/2 inch of oil in a skillet. Add chicken and brown on both sides. Reduce heat, cover and cook the chicken for 25-30 minutes. Turn the chicken every 5 minutes. Remove the chicken and pour out the oil leaving about 1/4 cup of drippings with the crunchies.

To make the Gravy:

In the hot drippings, stir in the flour, salt and pepper. Add the milk and water. Stir and cook until it reaches your desired thickness.
