Dry, rubbery chicken. Everyone has tasted that. Chicken breasts that are tasteless–what a waste to bird !!! The solution is buttermilk. Slice the chicken breast into thinner pieces and soak them in a buttermilk bath overnight–and you will never have to put a piece of rubber in your mouth ever again !
1 pound of chicken breast, sliced
herbs and spices of your choice ( get creative, that is the beauty of this recipe!!!!!)
Parsley, thyme, lots of salt and pepper ( VERYmimportant to season liberally) and dash of hot sauce.
Enough buttermilk to cover the chicken, I used about 1.5 cups
Mix everything in a large bowl and cover tightly with a plastic wrap and marinade overnight–the longer the better.
At this point, you could bake it or pan sear it, but I like to bake it first and finish it off in the broiler.
Arrange chicken on a cooling rack placed on top of a cookie sheet. This helps the heat to circulate all over the chicken.
Bake for about 30min (or till cooked through) in a 375 degree preheated oven and then broil on high for 5-10 mins, till parts of the chicken brown up.
The chicken always comes out soft and moist with lots of flavor, but it never really tastes like buttermilk ! I stored this chicken to add to salads or sandwiches or have it as is with a side of roasted veggies. Yu could even mis it in with pasts or rice. Make this a fridge staple and you are always minutes away from a healthy satisfying meal !
