This was a new recipe I tried on the weekend for the first time - of course for the purpose of blogging about it today. I love to try new recipes - most of the time they work out but sometimes we encounter a "miss". This was a bit of both. Next time I'll remove the skin from the chicken before marinating the meat - I experienced a lot of flare ups on the BBQ during cooking, even when I used aluminium pans. I served the chicken with grilled vegetables - the recipe is also posted.
This recipe is from Martha Stewart . I cook a lot using her recipes and subscribe to her Everyday Foods magazine. The original recipe (http://www.marthastewart.com/326573/grilled-buttermilk-chicken?czone=food/best-grilling-recipes/grilling-recipes¢er=276943&gallery=275423&slide=284398) makes enough for 12 – which is way too much leftovers for my family of three. I have scaled down the recipe to make enough for two meals. I also omit the use of salt in my cooking so I didn’t include it in the recipe below.
2 cup buttermilk
6 cloves of garlic
½ cup fresh rosemary or thyme
Freshly ground pepper
2 kg of chicken thighs, legs or drumsticks
- Combine buttermilk, garlic, herbs, and 2 teaspoons of pepper.
