Buttermilk Flattened Chicken
Flattened chickens can become one of your favourite meals. Once cooked the chicken is easily cut into quarters, with much less mess than a whole chicken
2 cups buttermilk
¼ cup canola oil
2 cloves garlic, lightly crushed
1 tablespoon crushed black peppercorns
1 tablespoon Maldon or other sea salt
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon honey
Mix all marinade ingredients really well in a ziploc bag. Let it reach room temp so the honey softens, then lay the chicken in the bag and remove air and seal bag and put in fridge for 2 days.
Turn the bag over 3 or 4 times during the refrigerator time.
Take the chicken out and let the added butter milk drip off and then cook whatever method you prefer. Can grill over a BBQ, or smoke on the green egg (adding one piece of cherry hardwood to the fire)
