Pour buttermilk and water into a shallow dish. In a separate dish, combine flour, salt, Italian seasoning, chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder.

When the oil has reached temperature, transfer the dredged chicken to the hot oil for frying. Cook for 6-7 minutes, turning the chicken as needed to cook evenly.
