Our friend Alex first introduced us to recipe idea when he cooked up cold smoked chicken for his amazing Ideas in Food blog. Fried buttermilk chicken has always been a bit of favourite when eating out, though up until now we’d never tried it at home.
This gave us the chance to give the fried chicken the ‘Gran Luchito’ treatment. The result was mighty fine!
Hopefully this easy to follow recipe will inspire you give it a go!
The addition of our Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste in the buttermilk marinade works incredibly well. Its gives the chicken a little something extra. The trick is to leave the chicken in the marinade for as long as possible (preferably over night) so the chicken takes on all that lovely flavour .
Depending on how much Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste you decide to put in you get a sweet smokiness and a bit of a chilli kick.
