Buttermilk Makes Tender Juicy Chicken Results Easy

The chicken in this buttermilk fried chicken recipe is soaked in buttermilk to tenderize it in the same way as Indians soak their meat in yogurt for tender, juicy results. After being soaked, some of the tangy buttermilk flavor will have soaked into the chicken and you will have a thin buttermilk coating which helps the flour and seasonings stick to the chicken pieces. There are many different buttermilk fried chicken recipes with different flavors and ingredients but the principle of using buttermilk to tenderize and flavor the chicken is the same.

This fried chicken is soaked in buttermilk briefly, lightly battered and seasoned.
