Best Buttermilk Baked Chicken-Connie's

Connie Ottman


I was messin' in the kitchen yesterday and came up with this crisp, extra moist baked chicken.
I used two thighs and four legs but I bet any cut of chicken would do great. It was really yummy and gone in one sitting. Broiled some asparagus and cherry tomatoes with it on the side. Yummy dinner:) Enjoy!
Prep time includes 8 hours of marinating.
Can be made without the buttermilk. Just won't be as flavorful or juicy but still good.
