Have you ever tried marinating your chicken in buttermilk? This recipe for oven-roasted garlic buttermilk chicken is about to change your life! I always marinate my chicken wings and drumsticks in buttermilk for the juiciest and most flavorful wings. I used the same simple method for this whole roasted chicken. The marinade is super easy – just buttermilk and Italian dressing; I used Wish Bone’s EVOO dressing. Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 6 hours, but overnight is best if you have the time.
I then season the chicken with a simple spice rub made with dried herbs and smoked paprika. The chicken is stuffed with fresh thyme, garlic, onion, a bit of lemon and then roasted over a bed of baby potatoes, carrots and more onion and garlic. You guys are going to love the roasted veggies! They’re cooked in delicious chicken juice drippings, absorbing all the incredible flavor. You get a complete meal, prepared in one pan! This buttermilk chicken recipe is great for an everyday dinner, or for a holiday party.
Watch my video recipe for all the details and check out how to carve the chicken for serving.
Chicken needs to bake for 20 minutes per pound, plus 15 minutes at 350F. I baked my 5 pound chicken for 2 hours; adjust your baking time according to the weight of your bird.
