Many buttermilk fried chicken recipes call for marinating the chicken overnight, but not this one. Here, a dip in the buttermilk and a dredge in flour is all you need to get the golden, crunchy coating everyone loves. The bright cucumber salad balances out the meal.

Sorry Allison Ehri Kreitler...Not sure why you put garlic in with the cucumber....totally cancels out the freshness of the cucumber/red onion...and as for the fried chicken...bland...the dill is the only thing that saves it....Was excited to try it...very let down and disappointed...do not recommend...Proves a point...not all blogs have good recipes...
I split the breasts in half and then let them soak in the buttermilk for about an hour. Great recipe!
