This creamy buttermilk mixture makes a great marinade for grilled chicken.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine buttermilk, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper.

Step 2

Divide buttermilk mixture and chicken pieces between 2 large resealable plastic bags. Let chicken marinate in refrigerator, turning occasionally, for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.

Step 3

Heat grill to medium-low. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and grill, covered, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of chicken reaches 165F°, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve immediately.

I expected something more from a buttermilk recipe, but we all found the chicken to be rather tasteless. I might go so far to say we didn't enjoy the flavor at all. A simple plain grilled chicken would have been more enjoyable.
