Spicy Grilled Buttermilk Chicken Recipe

Spicy Grilled Buttermilk Chicken


Grilling tends to dry chicken but brining it in buttermilk results in tender and juicy chicken.


  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 (8 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  1. Whisk buttermilk, cilantro, lime, garlic, chili powder, coriander, and cumin together in a bowl until smooth. Pour into a 1-gallon-sized resealable bag. Add chicken, close bag, and toss to coat. Refrigerate for 4 hours.
  2. Prepare an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove chicken from the marinade and discard any extra marinade. Grill chicken for 16 minutes, flipping at the halfway mark.
