Garlic Chicken Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Grill: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 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


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag or glass 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish, combine the first six ingredients. Add chicken pieces; turn to coat. Cover or close bag and refrigerate at least 8 hours. Drain and shake off excess marinade from chicken; do not rinse. Sprinkle lightly with cayenne pepper. Cover and grill over medium coals, turning once, for 30-45 minutes or until juices run clear. Yield: 4 servings.

"Though the chicken was very moist, it had no flavor, despite marinating overnight. I won't make it again."
