buttermilk bath

A buttermilk bath sounds like just the ticket as I ease into my golden years. Golden years? When are the golden years anyway? No matter lets get back to bathing in buttermilk. Isnt it fun to say - buttermilk. I wish I liked its tangy creaminess but I dont and the only time I like it is in pancakes and chicken.



This chicken bathed in this buttermilk for more than half the day before I fried and then baked it to perfection.



I fried it just enough to crisp up the crust then while still 'blonde' it sat in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes to tender up the middle and continue to brown - result was buttermilk heaven. This chicken jumped in your mouth and begged to be eaten, it laughed tenderness and cried flavor, golden, hot and delicious.

Colonel Doggy? That stuff looked better than a KFC magazine picture!

Bina said...

There is nothing better than crispy chicken. Yea, I'm the one that begs for everyone else's chicken skin! I have never heard of doing it in buttermilk. Did you use straight buttermilk? What else? I NEED to know!

Spin said...

Even after my night of way too much to eat that looks so GOOD!

Anndi said...

Oh my... YUM!

deb said...

Buttermilk just makes the juiciest chicken doesn't it?

Buff you stole what I was going to call him. I steal it back. Colonel Christo! Nice ring to it. I'll take a bucket with biscuits please (make those buttermilk too.)

deb said...

BEGGED TO BE EATEN, it laughed tenderness and cried flavor, golden, hot and delicious.

THAT'S A SLOGAN!

Anette said...

that sounds just poetic...

Beth said...

yep....still hatin ya....

Hey, do you do catering by any chance? My kid graduates in a couple of years and you could cater his party...of course, you and The Pup and Banana would have to come here, and we would HAVE to party a little bit before and after the actual party....you could stay in my closet like Bina did.....

Can I come over for supper?

buff: thats pretty funny but I am flattered none-the-less

bina: I used thyme, marjoram, sage, garlic powder, onion powder, celery powder, red pepper, black pepper and salt, not quite 11 herbs and spices but still tasty, I rubbed it all over the chicken and then poured on the buttermilk - after several hours of soaking I coated them in flour seasoned with onion powder, garlic powder, fresh black pepper and salt then they were cooked.

spin: and believe you me it was tasty

anndi: yum is only half of it

deb: pretty funny on the colonel thing...just like the buff

tavolini: I know, bisquits would be great...

anette: it was more like a ballet of flavors

beth: is it legal to keep people in closets in ohio?

blonde duck: sadly the chicken is all gone...

Michelle said...

It does look better than KFC. At what age does the Golden Years start?? I'm wondering when I'll reach it??

deb said...

you are not old. do not tell me you can actually access AARP? no way. pup

Michelle Ann said...

You seriously made my mouth water....now my head is clutter with visions of fried chicken, mashed potatoes and biscuits.

Barrie said...

That chicken looks fantastic! And I'm not even hungry. I use buttermilk when making soda bread.

Slip said...

Damn that does look good!

Marjie said...

A few weeks (or maybe months, I forget) ago, I cooked chicken directly in buttermilk with assorted spices. Damn good stuff!
