Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Buttermilk fried chicken is one of the simplest food recipes you can prepare for lunch or dinner. The savory taste of the fried chicken comes from a good mix of herbs and spices added to the buttermilk for marination. Serve the fried chicken with sriracha, sweet chili, or mayonnaise for added flavor to your lunch or dinner.
