Versatile Chicken

Recipe by Chris Reynolds

This chicken can be either fried or baked. I prefer baking it as it makes the recipe super easy. And good, of course!

Wonderful! I used four bone-in chicken breasts and let them soak all day. Used the oven method of cooking. Similar to fried chicken, but incredibly moist and juicy. The whole family enjoyed it, and I got to use up some buttermilk! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
