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. It can be made without the buttermilk. It just won't be as flavorful or juicy but still good.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Marinating in buttermilk overnight helps to make the chicken extremely tender and juicy. It's a great basic baked chicken recipe. Simple seasoning adds just the right amount of flavor. Dotting the chicken with butter helps the skin get nice and crisp in the baking process. After marinating, you basically just put the chicken in the oven which makes this an easy weeknight meal.
