This simple marinade was very tasty on the chicken! The garlic and paprika were subtle, and the buttermilk really made this chicken super-juicy.
I used boneless, skinless breasts and thighs because I had them in the freezer…I can only imagine the flavor is even better on bone-in chicken!
Grilled Buttermilk Chicken
1.5 cups buttermilk
8 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp paprika
1.5 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp black pepper
6 lbs bone-in chicken pieces
– In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper.
– Place buttermilk mixture and chicken in a large plastic bag (you might need 2), and marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour, or overnight. Turn bag occasionally.
– Heat grill to medium-low. Remove chicken from plastic bag and grill – covered and turning occasionally – for about 40 minutes, or until cooked through.
