Buttermilk Baked Chicken
Given this recipe's name, shouldn't the finished dish have the trademark tang of buttermilk?
Why This Recipe Works
We added salt and ranch seasoning mix to the brine for our Buttermilk Baked Chicken to up the tanginess factor. Adding ranch dressing mix to the bread crumbs further enhanced the buttermilk flavor. We stirred the sour cream into the buttermilk mixture rather than slathering it directly on the chicken. The thicker liquid held on to the bread crumbs without turning the coating gummy.
