Wonderful dinner. I used Substitute for Buttermilk for my buttermilk and let the chicken pieces steep for about 4 hours. I quartered a 2K (4lb+) chicken so I had 2 marylands (drumstick and thigh) and 2 breasts with wings attached. I gave them a coat in the flour mix (using flour, paprika, freshly ground salt and pepper) about an hour before cooking and then while butter was melting I gave them a second coat in the flour and continued as per recipe and the result was a crispy skinned and moist chicken. Served with cheesy scalloped potatoes and steamed vegetable. Thank you RecipeNut, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #26 - March 2009.
I was in the mood for good comfort food and this recipe fit the bill. My thighs came out crispy on the outside and moist and tender inside. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper. Made for What's on the Menu tag.
I used chicken thighs and let them soak in buttermilk and then i used bread crumbs , and backed it in the oven for 2 hours on 300 degrees, and it was so good it fell off the bone, cooked it in the butter milk , deff. make again had with veg, and home made fries.
Really good! Chicken is extremely moist & rich-tasting.
Followed the recipe almost to a Tee. But soaked chicken in buttermilk for three hours and then tossed in the flour mixture in a paper bag to ease mess. Preheated racks in hot oven in 12X14 oven pan and sprayed with Pam Butter spray... turned in 20 minutes and sprayed other side. Last five minutes used broiler. Outstanding! Thanks Recipe Nut!
Served this at a dinner party and had some really good cooks there. They loved this chicken. It is excellent! I did let the chicken soak in the butterbilk for a couple of hours but that was the only difference.
This came out extremely dry (almost burnt), without much taste. I would suggest maybe cutting the baking time to 15-20 min. a side, and checking it often. Maybe putting some of the butter on top of the chicken would have helped.
If you have trouble browning the chicken in your oven, try turning your broiler on for a few minutes on each side,. That should do it ; ) Thank you so much for the review
the chicken had a wonderful taste and I liked the idea that I didn't have to fry it. But I couldn't get it brown enough to satisfy family, any ideas on making it browner. Oh, and since my chicken was large I had to cook it longer, but it still didn't get brown. I like the receipe, I just need to know how to get it crisper and browner.Thanks for your posting.
