A friend gave me this recipe for "Buttermilk" Roast Chicken and when I saw that there wasn't any buttermilk in the recipe I was surprised. Buttermilk always keeps chicken so moist. The yogurt and milk do the same in this recipe.

How to Make "Buttermilk" Roast Chicken

Step-by-Step

  • 1Wash the chicken and put into a gallon-sized freezer bag. Add the yogurt, milk, garlic, salt, honey, curry powder and black pepper. Swish/swirl so that all parts are covered.

    Refrigerate for at least 12 hours or up to 48 hours. The longer the marinating time, the better.
  • 2When ready to roast, line a rimmed baking sheet or dish with aluminum foil. Arrange the chicken in a single layer.

    Bake in an oven at 325-degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how crispy/brown you want the skin to be. I leave my chicken in for an hour.
  • 3The chicken will be moist and tender, and the skin will be beautifully brown and crisp.
