Buttermilk-Brined Fried Chicken: Dinner for $10
The secret to making this Buttermilk-Brined Fried Chicken as a weeknight family-favorite? Prepare the buttermilk brine the night before — the extra soaking will only make the chicken taste better, and that way, come dinnertime, all you have to do is bread the bird and fry it up. Trust us, this is the type of meal that tastes like you spent hours on it, when in reality, fried chicken only takes about half an hour to make. We love the simple variations to this recipe, too — a dash of cayenne in the flour adds a perky bit of heat, while adding ground pecans to the breading makes for a delectable treat. Whichever way you go, this Buttermilk-Brined Fried Chicken yields 6 servings at just $1.34 per serving — meaning you have plenty of dough left over to spring for some hearty sides!
