Lemon-Basil Buttermilk Grilled Chicken

When Chris over at Nibble Me This declared his buttermilk grilled chicken marinade the best grilled chicken marinade he had ever made or tasted, I knew I better go buy some buttermilk!  I decided on a lemon basil marinade since I am growing basil and Chicken Legs loves lemon.  It turned out really great.  The chicken was very tender and juicy and tasted amazing.  Now I just need to get Chicken Legs to plant some cilantro, so I can give Chris' marinade a whirl.

  1. I would have never thought to marinate with buttermilk, awesome idea and it looks so good.

  2. I don't have a grill, sadly. Think I can use this but bake it or pan fry instead?

  3. Katherine - I definitely think you could pan fry or bake this chicken. Sometimes I do a little of both - brown the chicken and then throw it in the oven for about 10 minutes to finish cooking.

  4. I think the whole key behind this on is the buttermilk. We could probably put tacks and broken glass in it and it would still taste good. Okay, I might be exaggerating but buttermilk does do something great for grilled chicken.

  5. Always me favorite! Grilled chicken can be my meal for centuries. I can't get enough of it.

  6. I just hit the print button on the recipe and the recipe came up but there was no way you could actually print it. Very strange. So - I just cut and paste into a word document. Looks like a delicious recipe - look forward to trying it tomorrow.
