Dill-Buttermilk BBQ Chicken

This has been the craziest “spring” so far; it feels more like December than April. Sometimes though the sun peeks out like a little reminder that good things are ahead. That was the case when I made this dish; it was a beautiful afternoon that seemed like the season. Then it snowed. While we barbequed.

Serves 4

½ Cup (1%) buttermilk

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp fresh chopped dill

1 Clove garlic, crushed

The zest of half a lemon

The juice of half a lemon

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts

In a large deep dish, mix together the buttermilk, olive oil, dill, garlic, lemon zest, juice, salt and pepper.

Add the chicken breasts and completely submerge them in the liquid.

Marinate for 4 hours, up to 24 hours, rotating at least once.

Shake off the excess marinade but don’t pat it dry and the grill according to my Guide for the Ultimate Grilled Chicken.

Notes:

  1. This will work for bone-in chicken too.
