In a shallow baking dish, whisk together flour, oregano, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. Toss chicken pieces in seasoned flour, a few at a time, until well coated. Dip chicken in buttermilk, then coat again in flour mixture. In a large heavy skillet, pour oil to a depth of 1 inch. Heat oil to 350* F. Carefully add chicken pieces in a single layer, skin side down. Fry about 4 minutes; turn over and fry the other side for about 4 minutes.
