Chicken Breast is infamous for drying out on the grill. Buttermilk acts as a meat tenderizer helping the meat stay moist. Using bone-in, skin-on chicken will also insure the chicken will not dry out.

Instructions

  • 4 lb. Bone-in Skin-on Chicken Breast or Thighs
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Pepper
  • 1 tbsp. Fresh Thyme
  • 4 c. Buttermilk

MincedThyme

Rinse chicken under cold water and pat dry.

Measure out the buttermilk stir in the salt, pepper, and thyme until well incorporated. Submerge chicken in buttermilk allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours (freezes well).
