Saturated, seasoned buttermilk makes this chicken juicy and moist. The process has been simplified to make it quick and easy. It can be scaled to large groups (100+) easily. I often cook for a large church and this is one easy recipe for a group of 100 hungry college students!

  • Place chicken in a large stockpot. Add buttermilk mixture and toss until each chicken thigh is evenly coated.

  • Place chicken in resealable bags; squeeze the air out. Marinate in the refrigerator, 2 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Grill chicken, turning occasionally, until grill marks form, about 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

These chicken thighs can be pan fried as well. If you double or triple the recipe, do not triple the amount of salt; just add an extra teaspoon or two. Adjust red pepper flakes to your taste.

This chicken was a huge hit with my family and it's an easy recipe. I only did a couple of things differently: I used a teaspoon each of salt and red pepper flakes instead of the tablespoon of each that was called for. And I added garlic powder to the marinade probably 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder. Yum. Definitely a do-again!

I really liked how this marinade worked out; I only did a small batch of chicken thighs because I wanted to use an indoor grill. After marinating for five hours(wrapped) I grilled it at 375 closed for twelve minutes then transferred it to a 375 preheated oven for an additional fifteen. Flavor is excellent but chargrilled would definitely yield a better flavor!
