Buttermilk Chicken Legs by: Candace
Why marinate chicken in buttermilk?
The buttermilk tenderizes the chicken meat making it juicier and much more flavorful.
In a medium bowl pour 2 cups of milk and 2 tablespoons of ACV. Allow to sit for up to 5 mins to begin to "sour". After 5 mins whisk together until well blended. Place the chicken, parsley, salt and pepper into the buttermilk mixture in the bowl. Cover and put into the refrigerator overnight (at least 4 hours before cooking).
After marinating the chicken is complete begin to prepare the cooking process.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
While the chicken is still marinating in the buttermilk get a shallow bowl/casserole dish mix the flour, cornmeal and Lil Ham Spice blend together until well incorporated. Set aside the breading.
Assemble an oven safe baking dish with a wire rack. Set aside.
Remove the chicken leg from the buttermilk marinade and dredge in the breading mix then place on the wire rack. Place in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the meat thermometer reads 165 degrees.
Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley and ENJOY!
