Buttermilk Hot Sauce Brined Chicken – seriously the most tender and juicy chicken we’ve ever made!!! Chicken marinaded overnight in buttermilk, water, salt, pepper, garlic, lime, brown sugar and hot sauce. Brush the chicken with some BBQ sauce before taking off the grill. We LOVED this chicken! We always double the recipe and never have leftovers! YUM! #chicken #grill #grilledchicken #marinade
This Buttermilk Hot Sauce Brined Chicken is CRAZY good! SUPER tender and SUPER juicy. We ate this for lunch and dinner the same day. It was that delicious. It is so good that we’ve added to the menu again this coming weekend. I can’t wait!
Even though the chicken is marinated overnight in hot sauce, it isn’t spicy at all. I used Frank’s Hot Sauce. I linked to it in the recipe below. You can also use Crystal’s or Texas Pete’s hot sauce. We brushed the chicken with some BBQ sauce spiked with hot sauce before taking it off the grill. YUM!
The brine/marinade is super simple to make. You just need to plan ahead since you want to let the chicken soak for about 24 hours. If you don’t have that much time, just give it as long as you can. I used boneless chicken breasts, but you can use chicken tenders, chicken thighs or bone-in chicken. You will just need to adjust the cooking time depending on which cut you choose.
