this is a favorite at our house. a friend of mine made something similar and i changed it around to get this recipe. the buttermilk makes the chicken very juicy and tender. i learned that at a restaraunt i used to work for.

Delicious! If you love lemon flavor, this a great recipe for you! We thought the chicken came out very moist and tender and the lemon taste was very pleasant. I did cook the chicken in less oil (approximately 2 Tbsp.) for health reasons, which added some extra cooking time, but still produced a crisp crust and delicious flavor. I will make this again.
