Garlic Chicken

 Garlic Chicken
As a child, I spent countless hours with my mom in the kitchen. Now I do the same with my own daughter. Here's a chicken dish I gradually developed over years.
4 ServingsPrep: 5 min. Grill: 30 min.


  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 3-1/2 pounds), cut up
  • Cayenne pepper


  • In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients.
  • Add chicken pieces. Seal; turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 8
  • hours.
  • Drain; discard marinade. Sprinkle chicken lightly with cayenne. Cover
  • and grill over medium heat for 15-23 minutes on each side or until
  • juices run clear. Yield: 4 servings.
