Instructions Checklist

  • Divide chicken pieces between two 1-gallon zip-top bags. Pour 1/2 of the buttermilk into each bag. Press out as much air as possible and seal bags. Place on a rimmed dish or plate in case bag leaks. Refrigerate 8 hours to overnight, or preferably for 2 days. Flip bag halfway through marinating time.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Take the chicken out of the bags and place on a wire rack so any extra marinade will drip off. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and place the chicken in a single layer on the pan. Drizzle chicken with remaining oil.

  • Roast chicken in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Turn off oven and let chicken continue to cook until no longer pink in the center, 7 to 10 minutes more. Remove from oven and let rest 7 to 10 minutes. Garnish with parsley.

I marinated it two days and this revealed a very moist piece of chicken. Flavors were subtle but good. My husband really liked it a lot too. Read More
