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.
3/4 cup Buttermilk
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 Tbsp basil, fresh chopped
2 tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp minced garlic (dried)
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, ground
2 large boneless chicken breasts, pounded thin
Mix all ingredients except the oil and chicken in a large ziplock bag. Add the chicken to the marinade, cover, and marinade refrigerated for 4-24 hours. Grill 10-12 minutes, until chicken is done.
