Chicken fried chicken

I got this recipe from Texas Co-op Power magazine-May 

Make two shallow dishes. (I used cake pans). In one dish for 2 chicken breasts add 1 cup flour, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
In a separate pan, add 1/2 cup mayonnaise  and 1/2 cup buttermilk. I thought it needed more salt so next time I will salt and pepper the chicken before dredging in dry mixture.
Dredge the chicken in flour mixture, shake off excess flour, dip in wet mixture and then back in flour mixture. Fry in 1" of hot vegetable oil or canola oil.
