Buttermilk herb chicken is a quick and fabulous way to dress up plain old boneless skinless chicken breasts.
This is some of the best chicken I have ever eaten. It is so tender and juicy and the flavor is outstanding. I adapted it from a recipe from Daily Dish Recipes. Nicole raved about it and it looked so delicious that I had to try it.
I knew right away though I would have to adapt the recipe because it calls for plain yogurt which is something I never have because none of us eat it. I also substituted parsley for the original thyme and added lemon pepper.
Another great thing about this recipe is it’s freezer friendly. Toss the marinade and chicken together in a freezer bag and freeze.
