Called 'Shore Chicken' because the first time I made it was a family vacation at the shore. Made every year for 14 years since that first trip.

This baked chicken recipe is super yummy! It has great flavor and a nice crunch (thanks to that extra bit of butter drizzled on top). Marinating the chicken overnight in the buttermilk mixture really makes the chicken juicy.
