How long can chicken marinate in buttermilk?
Similarly, it is asked, can chicken marinate in buttermilk too long?
When you're using a probiotic type of marinade like buttermilk or yogurt, letting your chicken soak in it overnight is ideal. If you go much longer than that then you might end up with a tough chicken instead of a tender one. Most of the time you'll be using an acidic marinade.
Similarly, why do you marinate chicken in buttermilk? Because buttermilk is only slightly acidic, it is capable of tenderizing chicken without toughening up the meat like stronger marinating acids do (lemon and vinegar, among others). The enzymes present in buttermilk also help in breaking down the protein in the chicken, resulting in tender, flavorful fried chicken.
In this regard, how many days can you soak chicken in buttermilk?
Place chicken in a large freezer bag. Add buttermilk, 1/4 cup oil, garlic, peppercorns, salt, rosemary and honey. Seal bag securely and refrigerate overnight or up to two days.
Can you freeze chicken marinated in buttermilk?
Buttermilk has a very low fat content and freezes well, but even if it seperates a little on defrosting it will not affect the cooked chicken. Put the marinade in a large airtight container or a tough resealable bag and add the chicken. Seal tightly and freeze for up to one month.
