Mrs Wilkes Baked Buttermilk ChickenFrom lunasea 5 years ago
- 4 to 6 boneless, skinless chicken (can use bone-in chicken breasts, but remove skin and plan for longer cooking time - see below) shopping list
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk shopping list
- 1/4 cup flour shopping list
- 1/2 tsp. salt shopping list
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper shopping list
- 1/4 cup butter (I prefer unsalted) shopping list
- 1 (10 1/2 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup shopping list
- parsley, for garnish shopping list
- Optional: shopping list
- Add 1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper to flour dredge shopping list
How to make it
- Preheat oven to 425 F.
- Dip chicken in 1/2 cup of the buttermilk, then roll chicken in a mixture of flour, salt and pepper (and optional cayenne pepper).
- Melt butter in a 9" x 13" inch pan. (**NOTE: If I am using bone-in chicken, I add a tbsp. of olive oil for the longer baking time. It helps prevent the butter from burning and adds a nice extra flavor.)
- Place the dredged chicken in the pan, meat-side down.
- Bake uncovered for 30 minutes (1 hour for bone-in breasts). Turn the chicken over and bake for 15 minutes more.
- Combine the remaining 1 cup of buttermilk and the cream of mushroom soup.
- Pour over chicken and bake for 15 minutes more.
- Remove the chicken, place on a platter, and garnish with parsley. Serve with pan gravy.
- Our Suggestion: This gravy is so delicious that we sometimes double the gravy part of the recipe to make sure we have enough gravy to go over potatoes, biscuits - or just to drink from a martini glass. Okay, maybe nix that last idea.....but you could. It's that good. Really. There's no such thing as having too much gravy. That's our motto anyway. Enjoy.
