Buttermilk!! Why Do You Haunt Me! Time to Make Fried Chicken.

I swear buttermilk should come in a smaller carton.  This time we decided to make fried chicken!

Why would you marinate chicken in buttermilk before you coat them in bread crumbs? Well the buttermilk helps to tenderize the chicken and it also helps the breadcrumbs stick.

Marinate the chicken overnight in some buttermilk, salt and pepper.  You can be creative and add some spices as well.  However you will need to add a lot since the buttermilk waters down the intensity. I prefer to add the spices to the bread crumbs since you can taste the bread spices.

Take the chicken out of the buttermilk and shake off the remaining liquid.  Toss the chicken into some breadcrumbs.

If you are baking the chicken in the oven make sure you are coating it with oil.  Oil helps distribute the heat and make the bread crumbs nice and golden brown.  I drizzle some oil on top of the chicken and then pat it in with my fingers.

To accompany these delicious beasts I baked potatoes.  I might as well maximize oven space.  This is a play on scallop potatoes.

Start by slicing the potatoes into thin slices.

In a bowl, toss the potatoes with some olive oil, pepper, salt and garlic powder.  Arrange the potatoes in stacks. Bake them with the chicken. They should be done at the same time.

These yummy potato stacks are crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside.

Buttermilk Oven Fried Chicken

  • Chicken
  • left over buttermilk
  • Bread crumbs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • spices (optional)

In a bowl, mix together buttermilk, salt and pepper. (you don’t need to add a lot of salt since the bread crumbs are salty enough) Let the chicken marinate overnight.

Remove chicken from the bowl and shake off excess buttermilk.  In a bowl mix breadcrumbs and your favorite spices. Toss the chicken and place on a baking sheet.

If you are baking in the oven, pat each piece of chicken with some olive oil. This helps to distribute the heat and make the bread crumbs golden brown.

Bake in a 375 Degree oven for about 25-30 minutes until the chicken is done.

Potato stacks

  • small yellow potatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • spices (optional)

Slice potatoes into thin slices.  In a mixing bowl, toss the slices with olive oil, salt, pepper and spices.  On a baking sheet, stack potatoes into tiny stacks. Bake in a 375 Degree oven for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are nice and brown. You can test them but poking them with a fork.
